The last days of the Sundance Film Festival are upon us and that means many of the awards are starting to be announced. Just last night, the Jury Prizes as well as Honorable Mentions in Short Filmmaking were given out at the Jupiter Bowl in Park City, Utah. We don’t know how familiar you are with this category or the winners, but a lot of these guys are worth a second look.

The 2010 Short Film jurors are Sterlin Harjo (director, screenwriter, Four Sheets to the Wind; Barking Water); Brent Hoff (editor and co-founder, Wholphin DVD) and Christine Vachon (producer, Poison, Boys Don’t Cry, Hedwig and the Angry Inch). These award recipients will also be honored at the Festival’s Awards Ceremony hosted by David Hyde Pierce on Saturday, January 30.
