Congratulations to SIFF on their success of the 2016 Festival! Each year the festival culminates with the presentation of the Golden Space Needle Awards, which took place on Sunday, June 12.  This year was particularly exciting for Washington Filmworks as we are pleased to report that incentive project, Captain Fantastic, received the Golden Space Needle award for Best Film! In attendance was leading actor Viggo Mortensen and Director Matt Ross to receive the award. Washington Filmworks Executive Director, Amy Lillard, sat on the jury for Narrative Short Films as well as presented at the awards ceremony.
