Sundance 2015 Award Winners
The 2015 Sundance Film Festival came to the penultimate moment tonight with this year's awards ceremony, which saw big wins for festival faves Me, Earl And The Dying Girl and The Witch. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's tale of teenage cinephiles won both the Audience Award for the U.S. Dramatic and the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize. Robert Eggers won the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize for his witchy ways.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize went to The Wolfpack, about seven brothers who live in isolation, nourished on movies. The World Dramatic Prizes went to Alanté Kavaïté for directing The Summer of Sangaile with the Grand Jury Prize going to John Maclean's western-romp Slow West. James White won the NEXT Audience award, rather a surprise since the film is basically a twenty-something Amour.

Tomorrow, all the winners will screen one more time for Park City audiences, while ScreenAnarchy's coverage continues with more reviews, interviews and our wrap up rolling into next week. All of this year's award winners follow:
