2015 Grand Remi Winners

WorldFest-Houston is the only film festival in the world with ten major competition categories, not just Shorts and Features like most festivals. In addition, we have more than 200 sub-categories, so a small Indie documentary does not have to compete with a National Geographic Special. Each year, we receive more than 4,500 category entries, and only about 15% of total entries actually win a Remi Award. Since we did give first honors to Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, Jon Lee Hancock, Randal Kleiser and the Coen Brothers, the winners of this year could well become the Spielbergs or Ang Lees of tomorrow. We present only one Grand Remi Award to the top winner in each of the major ten categories. The Remi Award is named after Frederic Remington, who’s brilliant sculptures and paintings captured the spirit of Texas and the West.
