Thanks to your votes, "The Methuselah Generation," the 3-D documentary about four people in pursuit of science-derived immortality, won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest! Congratulations to co-directors Jason Sussberg and David Alvarado. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute. Stick around for this week's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, "The Methuselah Generation," the 3-D documentary about four people in pursuit of science-derived immortality, won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest! Congratulations to co-directors Jason Sussberg and David Alvarado.

The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.

Stick around for this week's Project of the Week!

EDIT:

We apologize; the poll was supposed to end at 10 am today and we didn't close it until 12:30. Screengrabs tell us that "Bending Steel" was ahead at 10am, but at the poll's close Methuselah had pulled ahead. It's our mistake and to make good we're giving both films Project of the Week status, which means they're each entitled to a consultation with SnagFilms and qualify for consideration as Project of the Month.

More importantly, we're now testing an app that automatically closes a poll at a given time, removing the human-error element. (Or at least, that one.)

If any of our readers can recommend a terrific polling app that prevents cheating (i.e., refreshing your browser to vote again) and can be set to end at a given time, I'd love to hear about it (Email: dana@indiewire.com). We're switching to Wufoo's just-released Facebook app, which has the timer (and Facebook prevents multiple votes). The ideal would be one that didn't require Facebook.

Again, our apologies.
