The winner of Best Narrative Feature was Kathleen Davison's well-balanced supernatural thriller Primrose Lane. 

The documentary award went to Jon J. Whelan's Stink!, in which the director tries to find out what specific chemicals are in common household products. 

For the short films, the live action award went to "StarMan", the story of a washed-up daredevil by Josima Roig. The animated award was claimed by the Turkish production "Golden Shot", director Gokalp Gonen's film about household appliances with dreams of freedom. Chris Gero's "The Gift" took home the music video award. 

The Lipscomb Pitts Breakfast Cllub-sponsored Memphis Rocks prize went to Becky Wauford's "Memphis is Rockin'", about the Christian Brothers University Honors Program.
