The 2014 Provincetown International Film Festival wrapped last night with a closing night party where this year’s winners were announced. HBO, the event’s key sponsor, backed this year’s Audience Awards, which went to David Frankel’s feel good drama "One Dance" (Best Narrative Feature) and Michael Rossato-Bennett’s "Alive Inside" (Best Documentary Feature). The ladies from Tangerine Entertainment (a production company launched last year to promote films by women directors), Anne Hubbell and Amy Hobby, were on hand to hand out their company’s Juice Award presented to a female filmmaker for her first or second narrative feature, to Desiree Akhavan for her autobiographical comedy "Appropriate Behavior."
