Thanks to your votes, the film about the magician who comes out as gay, “An Honest Liar,” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “An Honest Liar” directors Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom. The filmmakers will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
Here’s what the project’s about:
An Honest Liar tells the incredible story of famed magician-turned-skeptic and enemy of deception, James “The Amazing” Randi. The film brings to life his elaborate schemes and investigations that famously exposed psychics, faith healers and con artists. Yet after recently coming out of the closet as a gay man, Randi himself now faces the price of a very personal deception that might result in the deportation of his partner of 26 years.
