Jorge Michel Grau’s WE ARE WHAT WE ARE has won Best Picture in the AMD & DELL “NEXT WAVE” SPOTLIGHT COMPETITION at Fantastic Fest!

From the FF Blog:

Fantastic Fest is excited to announce this year’s crop of Fantastic Fest titles which includes some of the brightest and hardest-hitting films of all time. We’ve seen a psycho-kinetic tire, a secret ninja, a town invaded by 8-bit enemies, and a family of cannibals that you might consider going home with. It’s a terrible task to pick favorites and single out any of the magnificent films, but our esteemed team of jurors have done the nearly impossible and chosen the best and most striking films of the festival.

The juries were comprised of some of the most esteemed filmmakers, critics, festival directors and show biz people in the industry. Their thoughtful deliberations provided the following acknowledgments of cinematic excellence in all things Fantastic:

The audience awards are presented by accounting firm Maxwell Locke & Ritter, who provided the certified tabulation of ballots this year. AMD and Dell are the presenters of prestigious “Next Wave” Awards, which honor emerging filmmakers.
