    Spirits 2010 | Lynn Shelton: "'Humpday' was designed to be affordable."

    Lynn Shelton made quite the impression in 2009 with her second feature film, "Humpday," the story of two straight guys and life-long friends (filmmaker and actors Mark Duplass and Josh Leonard) who decide to shoot and enter a porn film festival with a project that stars themselves (and only themselves). The film received huge buzz in its Sundance debut, and then went on to numerous festivals and events including Cannes, Edinburgh, Provincetown, Seattle, and Los Angeles. It's now been nominated for the John Cassevetes Award at the Film Independent Spirit Awards, where Shelton won the Someone to Watch Award last year for "My Effortless Brillian...

Instead, Dolan's fellow Quebecois filmmaker Denis Villeneuve dominated the nods with his drama about the 1989 Montreal massacre, "Polytechnique." The film took 11 nominations, including best feature film, best ...
