After much deliberation, we have decided that the Directors Choice Award will be given to "In the Fall of Gravity," a unique animated philosophy film directed by Ron S. Cole of the United States. You can see video clips and production stills, read the directors statement, and learn about the making of the film at the Directors blog.

Last night's 2009 Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival was a true success.

We far exceeded our expectations for our little philosophy film festival in terms of the amount of people who attended and the positive reaction we garnered. We greatly appreciate the many, many people that lined up inside (and outside!) the Plaza Theatre and waited expectantly for our unique and intriguing program of Philosophy Films. No person is pleased by everything, but we believe we offered a program of films that was diverse enough to offer everyone something to be pleased about.

The overwhelming favorite and winner of the Audience Choice Award goes to the brilliant film, "Monsieur Cok," directed by Franck Dion of France. It is no surprise that this award winning animation was highly regarded by students, lovers, and enthusiasts of both film and philosophy.

The recognition is well deserved.

Following below are several pictures of the event:

Stay tuned for the announcement of the Directors Choice Award for the 2009 Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival.
