It was announced yesterday that Larysa Kondracki‘s The Whistleblower had won the Palm Springs Film Festival Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature. I missed it at last September’s Toronto Film Festival, and I hadn’t heard any particulars until today. Conspiracy thriller, American cop in Bosnia, human trafficking. Rachel Weisz, Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and David Strathairn.

It’s not playing Sundance 2011, of course, but it will show later this month at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.

Greg Jacobs and John Siskel‘s Louder Than A Bomb, about a major youth poetry slam competition held annually in Chicago, received the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature.
