Among this year’s movies that competed at the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival was “Honey Buddies,” which ended up winning the Audience Favorite Award for narrative feature. Directed by newcomer Alex Simmons and starring David Giuntoli (“Grimm”) and Flula Borg (“Pitch Perfect 2”), “Honey Buddies” is a highly comedic ode to friendship and the great outdoors.
When David is dumped just days before his wedding, his upbeat and very German best man Flula convinces him to go on David’s honeymoon together: a seven day backpacking trip through the Oregon wilderness. On the trail, the two friends meet a conspiracy theorist, a friendly backpacker and a bloodthirsty predator, all of whom test their friendship and their lives.
In the exclusive Slamdance TV spot above, Simmons and Borg take reflect on both the filmmaking and Slamdance experience. The video was made by the in-house documentarians at Slamdance TV who help advice the festival and its talented filmmakers. Watch the exclusive video above.
