Thanks to your votes, the definitive documentary on cinematic zombies, “Doc of the Dead,” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to director Alexandre O Philippe! The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation with SnagFilms, and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month, the winner of which will receive a consultation with the Tribeca Film Institute.
Without a doubt, Zombie Culture has now reached a tipping point. It has literally clawed itself into our braaaaains (!), successfully infiltrated mainstream consciousness, and asserted itself as one of the most entertaining, participatory pop cultural trends of the new century. As a direct result of this unprecedented social explosion, the Zombie Apocalypse seems to be on everybody’s lips these days. Should we categorize it as fiction, dismiss it as far-fetched paranoia, or speculate about it as a plausible scenario..? We believe there’s never been a better time to release an epic, comprehensive, and contemporary cinematic celebration of Zombie Culture.
