GROUNDBREAKING FILMS

The Louve Award is the highest recognition at SIFF and recognizes the one film that stood out amongst all other films to the judges. This film pushes film normalcies and uncovers hidden truths.

This film brings with it a powerful message, stunning cinematography, and remarkable on-screen talent. 

The
Louve Award goes to the film cast and crew that brought a fresh perspective to the eyes of their audiences; they took a story and transformed it into a beautiful vision.
