Last year, FTF proudly presented its inaugural John Huston Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinema to Oscar-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream). The award was presented by Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese. Additional highlights from 2013 included an invigorating and intimate conversation with Harry Belafonte, as well as panels on industry representation, diversity in cinema, and transmedia storytelling.
Feature-length endeavors in fiction, non-fiction, or animation will be on full display at FTF, and the festival's awards will be presented in a range of categories including Outstanding Direction, Outstanding Screenplay, Outstanding Editing, Outstanding Cinematography, and more. Last year's festival featured compelling tales from Argentina, Australia, Chile, Belarus, and Israel.
