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:
