|The Canadian horror film Dys- wins the CDFF Audience Award for Best Feature|
|The Cold Heart is the Audience favourite for Best Short Film|
I'm very happy to see these two strong and diverse films win the kudos of Ottawa audiences. The response for the festival was very encouraging. Friday night's screening of Roseville sold out and had turn aways while Saturday's screening of Dys- was a great night since the audience responded quite strongly to the provocative film, which is relief since it lets the CDFF team know that Ottawa audiences are hungry for films that take risks. Sunday's screenings were also lots of fun, with the shorts programme having an especially good turnout to see local filmmakers Carmelo Zucco and Dylan Hunt-Weeks share their films The Phoenix and Experiment 467.
Thanks to everyone who came out to support the strange and unusual!
