King Jack

Writer-director Felix Thompson’s “King Jack” centers on a single, pivotal weekend in the life of a bullied 15-year-old in a rural town.

Patrick O’Brien’s “TransFatty Lives” documents the life of O’Brien, also known as the deejay and meme-maker TransFatty, after he’s diagnosed with ALS and given two to five years to live.

The filmmakers took home $25,000 apiece as well as an original artwork.

Sundance feature “Sleeping with Other People,” written and directed by Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”), follows two sexual predators (Sudeikis and Brie) who swear to keep their relationship platonic. The comedy is due to be released by IFC Films later this year.

Documentary runner-up “Song of Lahore,” directed by Andy Schocken and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, focuses on Pakistani musicians who keep making music after their country’s Islamization.

The award winners were voted on by festivalgoers who received ballots as they exited the theaters.
