Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 11.29.00 AMRichard Linklater‘s 12-year filmmaking experiment Boyhood won the Golden Space Needle Best Picture award along with Best Director and Best Actress at the Seattle International Film FestivalKeep on Keepin’ On, directed by Alan Hicks, won the Golden Space Needle for best documentary. Other notable winners from the sprawling 25-day festival include Dawid Ogrodnik for best actor in Life Feels Good; Fool’s Day for best short film; and other competition awards for 10,000 KM, Marmato and Red Knot. The Golden Space Needle Awards are chosen by festival audiences.

Linklater’s film, which is set for a July 11 release, continued to build momentum for Oscar season, after grabbing the Silver Bear and two other awards at the Berlin International Film Festival and another at South By Southwest. Linklater began shooting Boyhood when its protagonist, played by Ellar Coltrane, was 5 and continued to film off and on for the next dozen years as Coltrane and his character eventually grew into an adult. Patricia Arquette won the Seattle festival’s Golden Space Needle award as best actress, and Linklater won for best director. One other note of minor disclosure: Brian Brooks, who writes Deadline’s weekly coverage on specialty film box office, was on the festival’s documentary jury.

Below are all the awards from the festival:
