Frameline, the world's longest running LGBT film festival, announced its 2013 winners for both audience and juried awards after wrapping up its 37th year this past Sunday.

Michael Mayer's gay Israeli-Palestinian drama "Out in the Dark" received the Outstanding First Feature prize from jury members Robert Hawk, Joao Federici (MIX Brasil fest director) and Mel Pritchard (BuskFilms). Stacie Passon's indie tale of lesbian ennui "Concussion" -- well-reviewed at TIFF and Sundance -- garnered an honorable mention. Both of these films will screen in LA at Outfest in July. (Read a fascinating interview with Passon via Women and Hollywood here.)

Jury members M.T. Silva (Pixar), Masashi Niwao (CAAMFest director) and Joachim Post (programmer of the Hamburg Queer Film Festival) awarded Outstanding Documentary to Marta Cunningham's portrait of LGBT violence "Valentine Road." Runners-up were Yoruba Richen's "The New Black" and SXSW hit "Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton" -- directed Eric Slade, Stephen Silha and Dawn Logsdson -- which also screens at Outfest later this month.

"The New Black" won the audience award for Best Documentary as well. Audiences awards went to Bruno Barreto's "Reaching for the Moon," a biopic on lesbian poet Elizabeth Bishop, for Best Feature, and Christopher Stollery's "Dik" for Best Short Film.

Year upon year, Frameline continues to expand its reach with provocative programming of independent LGBT cinema from the US and beyond. Frameline37 was a particularly strong year for documentaries. Read our reviews of films from the festival, such as James Franco's "Interior. Leather Bar" here and a second roundup of reviews including the riveting human rights doc "Born This Way" here. Check out select trailers below.
