    I never expected it to be in the winner category as far as the judging was concerned. Well, since I was one of the judges, I knew it wasn’t in there, but I was quite surprised that it didn’t snag the audience award. That said, the competition was steep this year and YEAR OF THE FISH is a pretty remarkable work.

    the competition was fierce, as it should be. the quality of films this year was the best so far, in my opinion –great job!
    in regards to Simple Things: it was a pleasure being able to screen an enjoyable, well-written, genuine film. unfortunately, most Americans will never see it [for all the obvious, overstated reasons].
