Vote for Project of the Week: Will It Be: ‘Cecil,’ ‘Superpowerless,’ ‘The Pamoja Project’ or ‘Zunn: Showgirls of Pakistan’?

Vote for Project of the Week: Will It Be: 'Cecil,' 'Superpowerless,' 'The Pamoja Project' or 'Zunn: Showgirls of Pakistan'?

The winning filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and will become a candidate for the March Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a creative consultation from the fine folks at the Tribeca Film Institute and will be in the running for Project of the Year.

The four projects up for this week’s Project of the Week are listed below (with descriptions courtesy of the filmmakers):

Cecil: A family comedy set in 1996 about a boy who can’t pronounce his name due to a lisp. He needs a new one. The choice… Michael Jordan!

Superpowerless: “Superpowerless” is a coming-of-middle-age story about a superhero who loses his powers after turning 40 and who must adjust to a new life. Why should teenagers have all the angst?

The Pamoja Project: We’ve all seen the facts that prove women are the solution to global poverty. Now it’s time to hear their stories.

Zunn: Showgirls of Pakistan: This feature documentary delves into the lives of Pakistani showgirls, a world of stars, sex trafficking and raunchy punjabi music and dance.

Voting will end Monday, March 9 at 11 a.m. EST.

Why were you all expecting email confirmations? I voted for Superpowerless, but didn’t get an email conformation either. Pretty sure that is irrelevant.

Sarah S.

Voted for "Superpowerless" and never got the email to confirm. Tried a secondary email address and didn’t get it there, either.

Debbie Grossman

Kristy White

I tried to vote for Cecil as well and did not receive any email notification to confirm.

Audrey Emerson

I think many email providers automatically block "polldaddy" I am hearing that many people aren’t able to vote because the confirmation email is never received (for gmail it goes to spam)

beth mclean

Voted for Cecil… have not received confirmation email :( I want my vote to count!


Tried to vote for "Cecil" but did not get a confirmation email.

Billy Gomes

Voted for Cecil, said I’d receive confirmation email, finally found it in my spam folder, followed the link and it said my vote was already submitted for that address? Still not sure my vote counted and would beg that someone would streamline the voting system…who knows how many votes are sitting in spam folders…

David T
