This year's standout, Cord Jefferson's American Fiction, took home this year's top prize, the 2023 People's Choice Award, joining the ranks of previous recipients and Oscar-winning films including Belfast, Nomadland, Jojo Rabbit, Green Book, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and 12 Years A Slave. Film critic tt stern enzi joins Cincinnati Edition to share his festival standouts.
