The Indianapolis LGBT Film Festival screened a handful of features and about two dozen shorts over the November 9-11 weekend. Earlier today, the jury winners were announced on the festival's Facebook page. Elliot Loves, a romantic (and mother-son) comedy by first-time feature-film writer-director Terracino, and Douglas Horn's Coffee & Pie, a comedy short in which a jilted woman discovers that revenge is sweeter when pies are involved, were the festival's top movies.

The Creative Director's Award, given "to the film that demonstrates creativity and the spirit of LGBT issues" went to Kai Stanicke's short Cold Star, in which a menacing group of people pushes a boy onto a diving platform, where he finds unexpected help from a mysterious man.

The Bob Dietrich Memorial Award given to a short comedy film went to Jason Sax's Do You Have a Cat?, which, as per the festival's website, "examines the trials of bisexual dating and pet ownership."
