Congrats to 'Sleepwalkers,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, the urban fantasy love story “Sleepwalkers,” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Sleepwalkers” writer and director Jason Merrin. 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:

Ben is a “Sleepwalker” – a secret alternate personality
that takes over every night when his “Awake” self goes to sleep. Whereas “Awake Ben” is resigned to a life of monotony, “Asleep Ben” is
determined to make the most of every night with his other “Sleepwalker”
friends. But the lives of both Bens become complicated when Sleeping Ben
falls for Allison, an “Awake” waitress at an all night diner, and the
lines between their two worlds – previously so distinct – begin to blur.

Stick around for this week’s Project of the Week! Want your project to be considered? Tell us about it.
