Awards for 2014

Jury Award

Best Documentary Film

WINNER

Queens & Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo: Matt Livadary
"It was a difficult decision to choose one 'best' because this year's documentary roster was so strong. Ultimately, we chose Queens and Cowboys because of its strong story, directing, editing, camerawork, use of music and its strong heart. It was an entertaining, courageous, moving, thought provoking film than upends just about every gay prejudice and stereotype."
