14th Annual Whitehead International Film Festival Winner is named.

By Marjorie Hewitt-Suchocki

Using our five criteria, this year’s jury selected a winning film that exhibits outstanding filming technique both in editing, camera angle, and lighting to sustain an illusion central to the film’s plot. The common good fostered by the film is a society where persons are valued rather than denigrated, whether or not they fit into our socially constructed norms. Dignity is the privilege of all, not just some.
