GRAPHFEST AWARDS

These awards are hardly typical. They are reflective of our great love of films, and honor the aspects of film that we love. Some films are imperfect and that makes them beautiful, these awards honor the perfect parts of imperfect films, and the equally imperfect people who don't just watch them, don't just appreciate them, but love them.
