Ocean Doesn't Care still

Thanks to your votes, tourism doc "The Ocean Does Not Care" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “The Ocean Does Not Care" directors Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll. The filmmakers 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.

The filmmakers will also be heading to Camden, Maine to pitch at the Points North Pitch at the Camden International Film Festival.  The festival is providing the filmmakers with lodging and a travel stipend.  If you're a filmmaker that wants to pitch to the world-class panel at the fest, submissions are still open

Here's what the project's about:

Americans travel to Mexico more than any other country in the world, because it's close, warm, and most importantly, cheap--relative low wages make it affordable for families and spring-breakers looking for an “all-inclusive” getaway. THE OCEAN DOES NOT CARE explores how local communities develop around tourist economies, in places like Cabo San Lucas, where the government has spent millions remodeling its marina for tourists even as many locals live in makeshift neighborhoods without electricity or water, or Cancun, where few of its six million annual visitors ever venture into the crumbling city of 700,000.

Stick around for this week's Project of the Week! Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
