Congrats to All the Prize Fest Winners
It was quite a bit different this year since we could not attend all of the Prize Fest events in person. These very cool events were held virtually and now we know who the winners are for this years top prizes in all of the Prize Fest competitions.
The announcements were all done online to honor the winners:
Greg Kallenberg issued this statement in a news release:
When we moved Prize Fest to online, we knew we were being ambitious with our programming; but, to be honest, we weren’t sure the people would show up, we couldn’t believe it when we passed 10,000 views on Film Prize, and our minds were blown when we went over 45,000 views and started seeing our online audience flock to Fashion Prize and Music Prize.
Here's the list of winners for this crazy year:
Film Prize goes to “Untitled Post-Baby Project,” directed by Lorna Street Dopson. She gets $25,000. She's the 1st woman to win the prize.
Music Prize winner of $2,000: Lance Thompson.
Food Prize and the Golden Fork winner is a tie between Tootie Morrison, chef of Abby Singer’s Bistro, and Anthony Felan, chef/owner of Fat Calf Brasserie. Each get $1,000.
Fashion Prize winner of $2,000: Hephzibah Thomas.
For the Prize Foundation, despite being in the middle of a pandemic, we never quit. We were determined to take our special event online to support and celebrate the independent filmmaking industry and creative entrepreneurs in the state of Louisiana.
