Cine las Americas Signs Out

Cine las Americas announces jury and audience award winners

Cine las Americas Signs Out

The 11th Annual Cine las Americas International Film Festival (my, that's a mouthful) has wrapped another year – by all accounts a rollicking success. Normally we'd say see you next year, but Cine Las Americas has been transitioning into a year-round presence. So... see you next month, maybe? And get some rest.

In what is presumably their last bit of official fest business, Cine just released this year's jury and audience award winners. The full list after the jump.
