Congrats to 'United Skates,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, a documentary about the underground world of roller skating in America, “United Skates,” won this weekend’s Project of the week contest!

Congratulations to “United Skates” and director Dyana Winkler. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.

Here’s what the project’s about:

All across the nation from small country towns to big metropolitan cities, a collective of thousands are gathering– completely off the radar.

United Skates documents the underground world of roller skating in America from Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Baltimore to LA, and more. This isn’t derby or disco but a fusion of hip-hop, breaking, animating and a new style all its own.
