Congrats to 'Some Kind of Spark,' Which Will Head to Maine as Indiewire and CIFF's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, the musical youth documentary “Some Kind of Spark” won this past weekend’s special Camden International Film Festival Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Some Kind of Spark” director Ben Niles. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month, the winner of which will receive a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.

“Some Kind of Spark,” is a feature-length documentary that follows at risk inner-city kids through the Music Advancement Program at The Juilliard School. Independently produced and directed by Plow Productions—the only production company to have been granted unfettered access to the program—the film is an intimate look behind the scenes, from auditions to recitals, at home and in school—as the students are exposed to, and inspired by, the profound impact of music. Shot in HD over 2 years, the film will serve as an entertaining and educational reminder of the power and importance music plays in all of our lives.
