Slamdance Studios Acquires Slamdance Winner 'Bible Quiz' for Its 'On the Road' Series

Good things are brewing at Slamdance as its fast-growing distribution division Slamdance Studios now brings on a new addition to its “On the Road” series, Nicole Teeny’s 2013 Slamdance award winner “Bible Quiz,” a documentary following the ambitious journey of seventeen-year-old Mikayla in which she attempts to win the National Bible Quiz Championship while falling for her quiz team captain JP.

The studio plans to team up with Virgil Films to launch “Bible Quiz” into limited U.S. theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles beginning March 2014, before screening it throughout the rest of the country. “As we’ve worked with Nicole at the festival as well as part of our
‘On The Road’ series, we feel that she is a great emerging filmmaking
talent and her film will find an even bigger audience,” said Peter Baxter, president of Slamdance Film Festival and Studios. Slamdance Studios will also partner with Virgil Films & Entertainment on
the VOD and DVD release of “Bible Quiz.”

The “On the Road” series, a traveling theatrical showcase, has expanded its reach in recent months, accumulating audiences in eight cities throughout the country and continuing to appeal to an increasing number of film lovers.
