The 10th annual Atlanta Underground Film Festival, held back on October 16-20, have released their impressive list of award winners, which includes 22 films.

The Best Feature award went to Dane Dakota’s Alex Dreaming, a comedy/drama about a Vietnam veteran who may or may not be imagining that assassins want to kill him. The Best Documentary Feature, Stephen Graves’s A Body Without Organs, previously won the Most Visionary Award earlier this year at the Chicago Underground Film Festival.

The Best Comedy Feature went to Jerzy Rose’s Crimes Against Humanity; while J.R. Hughto’s Diamond on Vinyl took home the Best Drama Feature award.

Lots of short films took awards, too, including Kurt Dettbarn’s Sad Monster for Best Short Film; Grey Wears’s Cereal Mascots Trix Rabbit for Best Animated Short; and Kevin Lonano’s awesome Space Dracula for Best Experimental Short. You can watch Space Dracula here on the Underground Film Journal.
