|Cody Campanale's Jackie Boy, which won the OIVA for Best Director - Narrative|
The winners of the evening are a diverse group working in features and shorts, fiction and non-fiction, and narrative and experimental film alike. As expected, Hoda Elatawi won Best Director (Documentary) for her feature film Muneeza in the Middle, which screened in town at the Mayfair in December before a well-received airing on CBC. The narrative prize, on the other hand, was a surprise win for Cody Campanale’s gritty character drama Jackie Boy—it’s a surprise only because the feature film has yet to screen in town. In fact, Jackie Boy is still shopping for its world premiere,so one of the local festivals will take note and scoop and Ottawa premiere for Jackie Boy following the film’s win!
