Congratulations to 'Growing Cities,' May's Project of the Month!

"Growing Cities"

Congratulations to "Growing Cities" director Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette.  The project received the most votes to win May's Project of the Month.  The prize is a consultation from the Sundance Institute.

If you’re a filmmaker (or know one) and you want us to consider an in-production film for our Project of the Day column, fill out the form here.

Here's a synopsis of the winning project:

GROWING CITIES is a film about urban farming in America. Part roadtrip movie and part feel-good documentary, the film weaves together urban farmers’ stories in over 20 cities across the country, providing a window into the people who are transforming our communities one vacant city lot and backyard chicken coop at a time. In following the filmmakers' journey cross-country, viewers are prompted to re-imagine what's possible in cities and inspired to create GROWING CITIES of their own.

And take a look at the film's Kickstarter video:

    I'm pretty sure there are two directors, and I'm pretty sure neither of them are named Kevin Pickman. Try again, Bryce.
