The Laurence Fishburne–produced The Cave of Adullam took the top doc prize as well as the nod for best editing at the Tribeca Film Festival’s awards ceremony, which took place yesterday (June 16).

Directed and produced by Laura Checkoway and produced by Fishburne, Helen Sugland, Jenifer Westphal, Roy Bank and Joe Plummer, The Cave of Adullam (pictured) profiles a martial arts sensei based in Detroit and his approach to teaching his young, sometimes troubled, students.

In addition to Abdullam‘s win for best documentary, Christopher McGlynn picked up the award for best editing for a documentary feature for his work on the film.

The honor for best cinematography in a documentary feature went to Boris Levy for his work on The Wild One. Directed, written and produced by Tessa Louise-Salomé, the film documents the life and work of Jack Garfein, a Holocaust survivor, theater and film director, and a key figure in the establishment of the legendary Actors Studio.

The festival’s Albert Maysles Award for best new documentary director went to Edward Buckles Jr. for Katrina Babies, an exploration of the short- and long-term impact of Hurricane Katrina as told by young people who were between the ages of three and 19 when the floods rose in New Orleans.

Best documentary short honors, meanwhile, went to the UK/Wales film Heart Valley. Directed by Christian Cargill, written by Kiran Sidhu, and produced by Christian Cargill, Lily Wakeley and Kiran Sidhu, the short chronicles a day in the life of Welsh shepherd Wilf Davies. Special jury mention went to the American-made short Stranger at the Gate, directed by Joshua Seftel. Recently acquired by The New Yorker, the doc was produced by Mohannad Malas, Suzanne Hillinger, Conall Jones, Jeremy Mack, Anna Rowe, and Eric Nichols.
