Thanks to your votes, crime drama "Yabanci" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “Yabanci" director Mo Faramawy. 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 Sundance Institute.
Here's what the project's about:
"Yabanci", a multilingual comedy set in Istanbul, is the story of Mo, a young adult about to leave to study in America. Mo is already an expatriate living in a foreign land and on his last night in Turkey he comes to face what home and friendship mean to him. It is a bittersweet journey where he realizes what he has taken for granted, his best friend Mina, his life in a beautiful city, and his family. In the end he must break down his self constructed barriers and accept his home, despite the hardships that come with it.
Stick around for this week's Project of the Week! Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
