Thanks to your votes, the documentary about the beauty myth, "The Illusionists," won this weekend's Project of the Week contest for last week! [Editor's Note: While the team behind "Riot on the Dance Floor" showed robust support, the filmmaker behind that film had earlier asked to be taken out of consideration after another producer encouraged the film's fans to game the system. Including the film in our re-vote was our oversight. We are impressed by the enthusiasm shown by fans of both films.]
Congratulations to "The Illusionists" director Elena Rossini. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.
Voting will end at noon on Friday September 16.
Good luck to all the filmmakers and happy voting!
