Big winners at Sundance.
Good morning, internet. Exciting news out of Sundance: Kickstarter-funded doc Blood Brother wins big at the prestigous festival, taking home both the U.S. Grand Jury Prize for Documentary and the Audience Award for U.S. Documentary. Incredible!
Blood Brother wasn’t the only Kickstarter success story at the festival. Of the 17 films that played, The Square won the Audience Award for World Cinema and This Is Martin Bonner won the Audience Award: Best of NEXT. Inequality for All and American Promise also took home special jury prizes.
Congrats to all the filmmakers and backers who made these films possible!
