Project of the Month July 2013

It's time to choose July's Project of the Month. The project that receives the most votes for Project of the Month will receive a consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film Institute!

Voting will be open until Friday August 2 at 5 PM Eastern.

"Teeth"

Daisy Brown is a 13 year old girl who has a strange medical condition: her teeth won’t stop growing. Mortified by her illness, she has the dentist file her teeth down to maintain a normal appearance. But despite her best efforts, the word gets out. The school bully is thrilled with this juicy morsel of information and uses it to embarrass Daisy in the most painful act of harassment yet.

"The Ocean Does Not Care"

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. 

"Chessboxing: The King's Discipline"

Chess and boxing - together at last. The W.T.F. factor of such an unlikely combination has made it an easy target for satire on shows like The Colbert Report or as fluff-piece fodder at the end of the nightly news, but to the man who invented it, chessboxing represents nothing less than the pinnacle of sport - an ultimate test of body and mind. Taking you to London, Berlin, LA and beyond, Chessboxing: The King's Discipline will tell the story of this man's struggle to transform his sport from underground cult curiosity into a respected and recognized mainstream phenomenon.

"Come and Get Your Love"

With only a few dollars to their name, best friends Stan and Beasley embark on a journey by foot across the length of Manhattan on a night filled with the promise of personal liberation, romance and enlightenment. Trekking through the city's colorful maze of people and buildings, they make their way downtown where they meet two young women who will challenge their plans for the future, their notion of love, and even their friendship, making this a trip they won't soon forget.

"Omphalos"

Gumshoe detective Darius Lefaux is summoned to the scene of a murder to view the body...his own body. Memories begin to haunt Darius and as the plot thickens, duplicates of him emerge. In a race against time, Darius sets out to find the murderous version of himself before it finds him.

In a dazzling narrative told with the textural richness and depth of art-house cinema, the best elements of pulp science fiction, and the scope of a Hollywood action-thriller, "Omphalos" follows in the footsteps of Darren Aronofsky’s indie classic "Pi," with a bit of Christopher Nolan’s deliciously entertaining "Inception."
