2021 InSession Film Awards – Staff Picks, Winners

2021 InSession Film Awards – Staff Picks, Winners

Hey everyone, here is an important update to our InSession Film Awards (Staff Picks), as we now have our winners!  It was a heated battle, with no less than 5 categories being decided by less than 10 points (we use a weighted, ranking system), and 2 categories separated by a single point! We all had a great time with this and we hope you appreciate the winners. Sight unseen, I would happily put our winners up against the Academy’s any day!

Without further ado, here are the winners for the InSession Film Awards as picked by our writers and staff! Winners in bold!
