Alas, aside from a few re-screenings tonight, 2009’s AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs festival is over. We laughed, we cried, we ate green goblin food. And now we wait for the best selections to get commercial releases and, if history repeats, some Oscar love.
Until then, here’s a list of fest winners:
