“Ape”

Trevor Newandyke is a struggling comedian. Not only does he bomb on stage, but he bombs in everyday life. He’s fed up with all the jerks who push him around. All he wants is a break, and for someone to get him. Instead of taking a breath and getting himself together or taking his anger to the stage, he turns to the loud din of his headphones and the crackling glow of fire to ease his mind. He’s not only a lousy comic, but a pyromaniac, as well.

“The Real Mikado”

An out of work Asian-American actress in New York runs out of money and moves back in with her parents in the suburbs of Detroit. Her hometown is facing a budget crisis and threatens to shut down the community theater so she agrees to direct a production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado” to try and save it.

“Sex After Kids”

It’s the film that every single parent in the world is going to want to see. It’s edgy, poignant and hilarious and through it’s ensemble nature covers a vast amount of relationships from the single mom, the same-sex couple, the newlyweds who have lost their grove, a power-couple who aren’t attracted to each other anymore, and a retired couple who are setting their last child off into the word and trying to see if they should stay together. It literally has something for everyone. And it’s cast is some of Canada’s hottest talent both old and new

“Flex is Kings”

“Flex Is Kings” is a documentary about street dance set in East New York, a highly impoverished community in Brooklyn. Despite the high crime rates, a large and growing group of young men are resisting gang life to pioneer a form of narrative dance that tells the story of their streets. Their self organized dance battle competitions involve mock gun battles as well as dream-inspired flights of fancy. The film–shot over 2 years and over 300 hours of footage–tells the story of this art form—called “Flexing”– and focuses on some of its key personalities.

SexAfterKids is the best project for me.I voted this Film plan, Jeremy LaLonde deserves all my esteem

LM

A shame and a squandered opportunity to give up-and-comers a shot in lieu of established Canadian insiders. Flex Is Kings should have won.

V

ITS SAD TO SEE PEOPLE NOT GIVE KIDS THAT ARE DOING SOMETHING POSITIVE WITH THEIR LIVES, THEIR NOT KILLING, OR ROBBING, OR IN JAIL. THESE KIDS DESERVE EVERY BIT OF THIS SUNDANCE OPPORTUNITY. HOW CAN A FILM ABOUT MIDDLE AGED WOMEN HAVING KIDS AND SEX BE SO POSITIVE AND HIGH RANKED. WHAT ARE YOU PROMOTING TO YOUNG KIDS..WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?? VOTE FOR FLEX IS KINGS.. ITS REAL, NOT SCRIPTED AND IT SO SURREAL .. LETS MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. SEX AFTER KIDS ALREADY IS ESTABLISHED BY CELEBRITIES.

Zoie Palmer is just gorgeous and absolutely hilarious. Sex After Kids looks like it will be great.

ann

Wow…. Over 1000 votes is pretty extreme. Maybe that's normal for these polls. At any rate, ape looks pretty rad. Unlikely to win this wack competition, but still rad.

Brooklyn

Flex is Kings is going to be an incredible documentary and without the stars that Sex After Kids has, really needs this opportunity to meet with Sundance to see where their project can go. Please vote for Flex and give these kids a chance to be known for making a choice to invest in themselves instead of succumbing to the pressures of their neighborhood. They have an incredible story of thriving under incredibly difficult circumstances – give them a chance to tell it!

rudeboy

Jenny

SEX AFTER KIDS! .. I can't wait to see this film it's already got me so excited. The cast looks amazing and the writer/director is very in tune and personal with the fans/people supporting the film. Such a nice guy! (and talented – obviously!) :P Again. can't wait!

Nikki

Way to go Flex is Kings! I love dance and the story of these guys is amazing!

Jane

Flex is Kings is the best by far! The content is rich and meaningful. The shots fantastic!

Jason

Sex After Kids is surely the choice here. All of these films have such great potential, but Sex After kids has such a wide audience and the cast is some of Canada's best. Director Jeremy Lalonde is unknown today in the US, come see this wall in a year and remember where you heard his name first. SEX AFTER KIDS.

Marisa M

Voted for Sex After Kids and can't wait to see it!

Joel Potrykus

Yo, Tyler and Larry. I made that movie and I want to party with you dudes. Hit me up…joelpotrykus@gmail.com. (unless you're just my homeboys under aliases.)

Sarah Bardin

FLEX IS KINGS looks absolutely breathtaking. A profound and poignant look into the lives of a group of inspired street dancers from the most impoverished neighborhood in NYC. Let's dance.

Tyler

Yeah, Ape looks awesome. I can't believe they don't have more votes.

Larry

APE is where it's at… can't wait to see more.

Lynn

Flex is amazing! A wonderful look at the passion of dancing. Beautifully shot! Can't wait to see more.

ThomDog

Ape literally has nothing for everybody. But something for some of you. It's gonna blow up.

Shenaaz

Just voted for the chipmunks of Sex after kids! :) (South Africa)

Rosanna

VOTE 4 THE REAL MIKADO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOW.

OyamO

As a professional playwright and professor of theatre at the Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor, The Real Mikado is what most interests me. It could be an exciting venture in a city, Detroit, that is economically suffering. This film could be quite uplifting to all those who see it. The actress wants what the city wants and needs. This film could inspire hope in individuals as well as in an entire city.

rae

Vote ape. It's a.maz.ing.

Jeremy LaLonde

Hey everyone! Jeremy LaLonde here from SEX AFTER KIDS. I just want to take a moment to thank everyone voting for any of the projects. We're all here trying to make our films a reality, and we're all winners just by being here. If you love any of these films enough to vote for them, go the extra distance and contribute as well, or spread the word about them. Even the smallest of contributions help so contribute to one (or all!) of them and vote with your money if you're able, or your social media outlet if you're not. Let's all make some awesome projects together!

John Wu

The Real Mikado – got my vote!! Can't wait to see the film.

RANA DEBAISSI
