2015 Winners are chosen!

The 2015 Julian Film Festival has come to a close for another successful year. We had record attendance this year and even had to set up over 20 additional chairs to augment our seating for “OR-7 – The Journey” which won the Audience Choice award. The new late summer time frame worked out well for everyone and we had perfect weather for the Volcan Mountain Sky Island hike on Sunday morning.

Here are the winners of the 3 James Hubbell designed awards.
