The Northeast Film Festival recently wrapped its inaugural edition, with several locals making a big splash at the Awards Gala on September 15th. One of those locals Sam Borowski, whose movie “Maniac,” was previewed in the Observer last month, took home the top honors for Best Director of a Short and Best Short for the aforementioned film.
