Best Indie Filmmaker

Thom Fitzgerald

It’s so hard to incite a good old-fashioned indie filmmaker feud. They’re all too damn modest these days. After a tight finish, Thom Fitzgerald, whose Three Needles was the opening night film at the 2005 Atlantic Film Festival, had nothing but good things to say about first runner-up Jay Dahl: “He’s very funny. And since I’m not that funny, I really do appreciate people who are as funny as Jay Dahl.” OK, no luck there. Jay, would you care to cast the first stone? “If there was an award for film integrity,” says Dahl, “Thom Fitzgerald would win for sure.” Oh, come on people! Where’s the anger? Where’s the aggression? Where’s the subtle backhanded snub? Huh?
