Thanks to your votes, the story of two estranged  brothers that share an exceptional bond through art, "The Other Brother," won this weekend's Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to "The Other Brother" and director Kristy Higby. 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:

This film is about the "genetics" of art and sibling estrangement. Despite no contact between the brothers since the ages of 19 and 21, Jesse and Tom share the same passion; they both dedicated their life to making art. There are remarkable similarities; there are also clear differences. This story explores their very different lives and the visual thread that connects them. This story unfolds through first-person family interviews and readings of Jesse’s letters. Memories reconstruct. As if eavesdropping on fragments of a family discussion, the film compels viewers to keep listening for clues to satisfy their desire to understand.
