Audience Choice Award: Best Documentary Mammoth Lakes

We are really proud to announce that we won the Audience Choice Award at Mammoth Lakes Film Festival!  There is something very special about winning the Audience Award at any festival but we are really honored to win here as the competition was really tough.  Shira Dubrovner and Paul Sbrizzi put together an impressive line up of films and we were honored to take part.  To come away with the Audience Choice for Best Doc when you are going up against films like Cartel Land, The Chinese Mayor, and Steve Jobs: The Man and the Machine is quite special.  What a great festival, we enjoyed it so m
