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.

    NOT the same movie!!! IndieWire, you're doing a disservice both to the movie you're trying to promote and the movie that's actually going to Sundance. Check your facts, hello?!

    Based on the plot summary for Lucia on Wikipedia, the two films seem almost totally different in basically every meaningful way, other than the fact that they both involve two parallel versions of the same character.

    The plot is exactly the same as an Indian Kannada language film Lucia.
