The 24th annual Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival, which was held back on June 21-23 in Chicago, has at last announced their award winners. Prizes were given to three lucky winners along with four others earning Honorable Mentions.

This year’s two-panel jury consisted of Chicago filmmaker Melika Bass and Cinema and Media Studies professor Adam Hart (University of Chicago).

First Prize went to Luther Price‘s Selected 35mm Slides presentation, which consisted of 80 individually handmade 35mm slides made up of frames from Price’s found footage films and other images.

Second Prize went to Stephanie Barber for her video 10 From Jhana and the Rats of James Olds, which consisted of 10 videos made during Barber’s residency at the Baltimore Museum of Art where she created a video a day for over a month.

Third Prize went to Pat O’Neill for his video Painter and Ball 1-14, a combination of footage shot by late filmmaker Richard Matthews back in 1976 along with new footage by O’Neill.

The four Honorable Mentions, listed in alphabetical by title order, went to: Michael Robinson (Line Describing Your Mom), David Gatten (The Matter Propounded, of its Possibility or Impossibility, Treated in Four Parts), Lewis Klahr (The Pettifogger), and Jesse McLean (Remote).
