John Gray's 1975 set Brooklyn tale "White Irish Drinkers," and Lilly Rivlin's documentary "Grace Paley: Collected Shorts," were the two big Audience Award winners last night at the Woodstock Film Festival. "Drinkers" nabbed the Audience Award for Narrative Feature, while "Grace Palley" walked away with the Audience Award for Feature Documentary. "Inuk," directed by Mike Magidson was the runner up for the Audience Narrative Feature award; Jeff Malmberg's acclaimed "Marwencol," the runner up for the Audience Feature Documentary award.

"Drinkers" tells the story of two brothers trapped in blue collar Brooklyn, and in a violent family household, where they live under the watch of their tyrannical, alcoholic father. Rivlin's film brings to life the momentous times of author and activist Grace Paley, as she reads from her short stories, poems and essays.
