The Angelus Awards has announced the winners of its eighth annual kudos, which features cash and industry prizes worth more than $23,000 to student filmmakers as well as a screening of the winning pics at the DGA Oct. 25.

A special award, the Spirit of Angelus, will be presented posthumously to Veronique Peck, widow of Gregory Peck, for his lifelong contribution to the entertainment industry.

This year, 21 college pics were chosen as finalists from among a record 472 entries from all over the world.

The Angelus Awards are conducted by Family Theater Prods., a Catholic media outlet that garners support for filmmakers whose films reflect “spirituality, equality and hope.”

Other winners include “Sophie,” “Little Red Plane,” “Shui Hen,” “Sid Vision” and “Snout.” Honorable mentions go to “A Thousand Words,” “Maree,” “The Anniversary” and “Still Waters.”
