Announcing 2015 Kaleidoscope Award Winners

It was an honor of the FILM SOCIETY OF LITTLE ROCK to host the first year of KALEIDOSCOPE!  THANK YOU to everybody who came out and made it special.  And now, the winners are....

 

It was a true honor to screen all of the Official Selections of the inaugural year of Kaleidoscope!  Picking winners is rarely easy.  This year we heard one person after another talk about all the great films in the lineup. And we cannot thank all of the filmmakers enough for allowing their films to be part of the first ever Kaleidoscope LGBT Film Festival.

So it is with great pride that we announce the winners of the 2015 Kaleidoscope!
