ALONE TOGETHER FEST ANNOUNCES 2020 FILM AWARDSFriday, July 10th 2020
Salt Lake City, UT
Alone Together is proud to announce the winners of the first edition of their newly established film festival.
The jury comprised by a prestigious panel of filmmakers and educators, including Jerry Ricciotti, Summer Florence and Olga Osorio, were tasked with the difficult job of ranking the films and choosing the best of the show.
A particularly challenging undertaking given the high quality of the films and competitive nature of the already hard selection process.
«While not all the films can’t be named winners, Alone Together strongly believes that getting selected to be part of the festival is already an award on its own!»
