It was extremely challenging to narrow down the choices to only 4 films, so it is only fair to add some honorable mentions that were very much part of the conversation when attempting to chose the BEST FEATURE, BEST SHORT, BEST HUMOR, and BEST SEX-POSITIVE.

Shattered, Letter to My Mother, Sauce, The Pizza Topping, Piss Off, It’s Complicated, Love Your Cunt, and Restless.
