Vote for Project of the Week: Will It Be 'American Monster,' 'Wizard Mode,' 'Look at Us Now, Mother!' or 'Real Boy'?

The winning filmmaker will become a candidate for October Project of the Month. That winner 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). You can vote at the bottom of the page.

American Monster: A non-fiction crime thriller, told through the eyes of those closest to a bizarre and brutal crime, “American Monster” strives to flip the script on the American culture of violence in by re-examining it as a community problem.

Wizard Mode: Robert Gagno is one of the world’s best pinball players. He also happens to have autism. As Robert comes of age while rising up the ranks of the international pinball circuit, he strives to gain his independence and transcend the label of autism.

Look at Us Now, Mother!: A daughter and mother explore their past to fix their future. Told with biting humor and raw honesty, this is an intimate story about family dysfunctions, forgiveness and healing.

Real Boy: The coming-of-age story of transgender musician Bennett Wallace over three years as he grapples with issues of identity, sobriety, and connection to the people he loves.

Voting will end Monday, October 12 at 11 a.m. ET.
