The 11th annual Gen Art Film Festival concluded last night with a screening of SXSW darling Live Free or Die, followed by the presentation of jury awards. 

Wristcutters: A Love Story took home the Acura Grand Jury Award for Best Feature and, honestly, you could tell the folks from Live Free or Die were pissed. In fact, and I don't know if this was his reason, but Michael Rapaport abruptly left immediately following the awards and was the only cast member not to participate in the Q & A. Judging from our reviews of bothfilms, it appears Wristcutters was more worthy of its award. And I agree.

A film called The Intervention won the Acura Grand Jury Award for Best Short and my personal favorite from the festival, Behind the Mask, took the coveted Feature Film Audience Award. Why is it coveted? Well, because Gen Art claims they have the best audience. And since yours truly was in attendance for a few of the nights, I can't really disagree with that statement.
