The 12th annual Boston Underground Film Festival, which began on March 25 and ends on April 1, has released their list of award winners for this year that also includes BUFF’s first ever lifetime achievement award.

There are six winners, listed below, in the categories of narrative, documentary, short, director’s choice and the always popular Most Effectively Offensive, which had some real competition this year thanks to the fest’s concentration on exploitation, or “grindhouse,” films for this edition. The winners are:

Best of Fest Narrative
Red White & Blue, dir. Simon Rumley

Best of Fest Documentary
It Came From Kuchar, dir. Jennifer M. Kroot (Read the review)

Best of Fest Short
Happily Ever After, dir. Jamie Heinrich (Watch online)

Director’s Choice
Someone’s Knocking at the Door, dir. Chad Ferrin

Most Effectively Offensive
The Life and Death of a Porno Gang, dir. Mladen Djordjevic

Lifetime Achievement Award
Mink Stole

The Best of Fest winners were chosen by a panel of four judges that included curators, filmmakers and festival programmers: Carter Long, James Nadeau, Kathryn Ramey and St├ęphanie Tr├ępanier. The directors choice award was selected by the festival’s own four directors.

All winners received a Bacchus, the festival’s vibrating bunny mascot.
