Thanks to your votes, the friend reunion film “Ripe” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “Ripe” director Laura Somers. The filmmaker 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:
Five girls return to their hometown after their freshman year of college to throw a wedding for 18-year-old Lee, and find that their relationships with romantic flings and controlling parents haven’t changed all that much. Jean, Lee’s bohemian maid of honor, can’t believe that her best friend, a UN-bound high school valedictorian with world-changing aspirations, is now a willing a teenage bride. Lee’s enthusiasm and Jean’s misgivings about the fast-approaching nuptials test the limits of their friendship as the two stumble towards adulthood.
