2017 NCGLFF JURY AWARD WINNERS!

The Jury Awards are selected by the members of the Programming Committees. Each committee (Men, Women, Transgender) selects the winners in their respective category. Committees have the option to create and name their own categories (feature, short, long-form, etc.) but are not necessarily bound to present an award in every category. A category may be deemed ineligible if not enough competitive entries are received.
