Thanks to your votes, the race satire "Dear White People" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Dear White People" director Justin Simien. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month.

Here's what the project is about:

Remember when Black movies didn't necessarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason?

The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back.

The film follows four black students at a predominately white Ivy League where a popular "African American themed" party takes place. Through their unique perspectives the film tackles race identity in "post-racial" America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.
