Making its Southern New England premiere at the 35th Annual Rhode Island International Film Festival, Edith+Eddie took home the Flicker's Youth Film Jury Award for Best Documentary from the fest this week!

The fest's Youth Jury consists of high school and college age students based in Souther New England. 

Prior to the film's screening and win at the fest, director Laura Checkoway was in Prizren, Kosovo for the film's three showings at DokuFest.
