Local guy Cutter Hodierne is one of the big winners at the Sundance Film Festival this week. His “Fishing Without Nets” — a 17-minute drama about Somali fishermen lured into the pirate trade — won the top jury prize for short films Tuesday night. The 25-year-old writer/director — a graduate of Arlington’s H-B Woodlawn Secondary Program — hopes to turn his story into a feature-length film. His co-writer on the prize-winning project, John Hibey, is a Georgetown Prep grad.
