The winning filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and will become a candidate for the January Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a creative consultation from the fine folks at the Tribeca Film Institute and will be in the running for Project of the Year.
The four projects up for this week’s Project of the Week are listed below (with descriptions courtesy of the filmmakers):
Rain: A social worker from a janitor’s union questions an autistic employee about strange occurrences at the school.
Feral: Jack spent his childhood in the rough wilderness and is now reunited with his mother after 14 years.
Big Sonia: BIG SONIA profiles 89-year old Diva and Holocaust survivor Sonia Warshawski. Deeply rooted in the past and completely relevant NOW.
Across the Sea: A Turkish immigrant living in New York with her husband, Damla must now return to her homeland and confront a troubling secret from her past.
Voting will end Monday, January 26 at 11 a.m. EST.
