On Tuesday night it was announced that writer/director Adam Leon’s first feature Gimme the Loot, about a pair of teenage Bronx graffiti artists on a slapdash revenge mission, won the film festival’s 2012 Grand Jury Prize for best narrative feature. The film stars newcomers Tysheeb Hickson and Tashiana R. Washington and follows their characters over the course of two hot summer days. Beware of Mr. Baker, Jay Bulger’s portrait of Cream drummer Ginger Baker, took home the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary feature. Audience awards went to Annie Eastman’s documentary Bay of All Saints and Megan Griffiths’ human trafficking drama Eden. Jamie Chung, the star of Eden, took home a special jury recognition for performance award.
