Fantastic Fest has announced this year’s awards winners.  Vanishing Waves was the big non-horror, non-comedy winner by picking up four awards including Best Feature, Best Director (Kristina Buozyte), Best Screenplay (Bruno Samper, Buozyte), and Best Actress (Jurga Jutaite).  On the horror side, Here Comes the Devil pulled a sweep by winning Best Picture, Best Director (Adrián García Bogliano), Best Screenplay (Bogliano), Best Actor (Francisco Barreiro), and Best Actress (Laura Caro).  It’s worth noting that special mentions in the horror category went to Hajime Ohata (Best Screenplay) and Katherine Isabel (Best Actress).  Finally, the Audience Award went to I Declare War (a film I found quite charming), the well-directed and funny Flicker won the “New Wave” Spotlight competition, The American Scream won Best Documentary, and New Kids Nitro won Best Comedy.
