In keeping with tradition, juries of leading industry experts and filmmakers determined the Slamdance Awards for the Narrative Feature, Documentary Feature and Short Film categories. The Audience Awards, as well as the Spirit of Slamdance, an award given by the filmmakers of Slamdance 2016 to the filmmaker who best embodies the spirit of the festival, were also awarded. The feature competition films in the Documentary and Narrative Programs were limited to first-time filmmakers working with production budgets of less than $1 million.

“Congratulations to all of the filmmakers this year," said Peter Baxter, Slamdance President and co-founder, in an official statement. "Outside of winning a Sparky, as a collective they showed us the power of real independent film and how much it enriches our lives."
