“Livingin Oblivion,” Tom DeCillo’s snappy low-budget movie about the trials and tribulations of making a low-budget movie, won the first juried competition at the annual American Film Festival, whose 21st edition ran Sept. 1-10.

Jury split its Special Jury Prize between Cannes Crix Week winner “Denise Calls Up” and Sundance winner “The Brothers McMullen.”

The Crix Prize went to “Swimming With Sharks,” George Huang’s dark comedy about the relationship between a studio exec and his assistant.

Fest attracted Kevin Costner, Clint Eastwood, Denzel Washington and Jack Nicholson.
