A pair of Audience Awards were handed out at tonight’s Tribeca Film Festival wrap party: one for a narrative film, the other for a documentary. Australian director Kim Mordaunt’s The Rocket (pictured above) won the former —  the Laos-set film also won the two awards from the Festival’s jury earlier this week, including Best Narrative Feature, the top prize. Meanwhile, the Documentary Audience Award went to Bridegroom, a documentary by Designing Women creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason that focuses on the timely same-sex marriage debate by exploring the difficulties faced by a gay man after the untimely death of his partner.
