Double Take Vanguard Award

Double Take Vanguard Award

The One Take Film Festival's Double Take Vanguard Award is an annual presentation that spotlights the work of an artist during the festival.  By presenting the audience with an opportunity to take a second look at a previous work from the recipient, and also showcasing a contemporary project, we are able to engage in a dialogue on vision and merit, through a much longer lens.  

It is an honor to present Steve James with our inaugural award. He is a master documentarian with a distinguished career and whose work illuminates humanity with honor, integrity, complexity, and courage. 

The festival will screen two of his films: ABACUS (2016) + HOOP DREAMS (1994) 

The 2017 Double Take Vanguard Award will be presented on May 21st at 12:00pm, just prior to the screening of ABACUS.  Post-screening there will be a Q&A with Steve and Jack Garner.
