– Best Documentary
PITCH : Parallel Lines tells the stories of Olga Perez, a formerly undocumented maid, and Chuck Foss, a former U.S. border patrol agent, who respectively live in the border towns of Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas, and whose occupational histories would seem to put them at odds. But the stories Olga and Chuck share reveal a much more complex relationship between those who police the border and those who cross it, which also includes compassion, respect, and a shared daily existence.
Allison Walsh is an artist and emerging documentary filmmaker. She combines her art disciplines to bring new life to the documentary stories she encounters. Walsh has a BFA in Painting and a BA in Spanish from Bradley University. Parallel Lines is Walsh’s first film, beginning in January 2017.

Best Dance Film 2017
After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, élodie turned her suffering and fears into a creative fight against the disease and the debilitating effects of the treatments used. Her latest work, Iridescence, is the personal story of her fight with cancer and the way she found to deal with the disease in a creative and hopeful manner. It’s also a way of giving back and handing on the positive vibes that she’s received from friends, family and strangers during the course of her disease.
‘There are many of us (patients, friends or family) fighting cancer with creativity. Composing, drawing, painting, writing, body art-ing etc., to prevent it from stealing our souls. So let’s share ideas and creations in order to inspire people around us, who in turn will inspire others.’
