You’ve decided! The Best of Fest for our 9th annual festival is CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER!
This wry and wonderful film about people entranced by the typewriter as a tool and an
inspiration captured our audience’s heart – although truthfully it was a hard-fought
battle. Three other films from this year’s fest came within .005 points of the winner in the
audience-ballot- decided Best of Fest prize. Once again, Roslyn Bern’s LEACROSS
FOUNDATION generously provided a cash prize for the director of the winning film,
Doug Nichol. When notified, Doug said, “Thanks so much for the email and great news! I’m so happy people responded to it. The film was a real labor of love for all of us.”
And the 9th annual fest ended on a real high, as a full house at the Black Sheep sang
along to the remastered MONTEREY POP, then danced their socks off to Greg Stone
and WKFLD PWR CMPNY. A fantastic night!
