2009 FFCC Award Winners

Best Narrative Film

Winner: Slumdog Millionaire
The story explores the deepest themes of life, from loyalty and love to betrayal and despair.  The redemptive nature of the film is seen in the title itself as Jamal travels an unexpected road which prepares him for the questions he will be asked on the television show.  That love is possible in even a “slumdog’s” life is a message of hope that speaks to a world where the majority of humanity lives in poverty. (Hal Conklin and Denny Wayman, Cinema in Focus)
