The 6th annual Minneapolis Underground Film Festival, which was held back on Oct. 3-6, has announced their list of award winners, which includes eight films.

The biggest winner was the documentary Hit & Stay, co-directed by Joe Tropea and Skizz Cyzyk, that won the Largest Audience award. The film recounts the story of a group of Vietnam War protestors that broke into draft boards and destroyed records, which landed them in prison. Hit & Stay previously tied for the Audience Award at the 2013 Chicago Underground Film Festival.

Another winning documentary was Mondo Fuzz: Twilight of the Idles, which took the Experimental award. The film, a chronicle of the Austin, Texas garage rock scene, is directed by Andy Ray Lemon, who previously founded and ran the Austin Underground Film Festival.

Other winners include Jeffrey Ford and Brad Bear’s Where’s the Fair?, which won the Documentary award; Charles Pieper’s Last Remant, which was the Cinematography winner with D.P. work by Lowell Meyer; Phil Holbrook’s Tilt, which was the Editing winner for the work done by Jeremy Doyle; Best Feature winner LFO, directed by Antonio Tublén and more.
