The True/False Film Fest, the Columbia, Missouri-based documentary film festival, announced their lineup late last night.
(T)ERROR recently had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival where it won the US Documentary Special Jury Prize for Breakout First Feature. Something Better to Come made its debut at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA).
Congratulations to these stellar Chicken & Egg Pictures grantees!
Netflix has acquired the rights Hot Girls Wanted on the heels of the film’s world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
When announcing the acquisition, Netflix VP of Global Independent Content Erik Barmack said, “Jill and Ronna have exposed a shocking world of hope and heartbreak. The filmmakers gained unprecedented access into a world never documented until now, and we are proud to bring their unflinching work to a global audience.”
Netflix will premiere the film later this year. Jill and Ronna’s previous collaboration, Sexy Baby (also supported by Chicken & Egg Pictures), is currently available on Netflix.
Four Chicken & Egg Pictures grantees will be hitting the slopes in January at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
The Amina Profile (directed by Sophie Deraspe), Dreamcatcher (directed by Kim Longinotto), Hot Girls Wanted (directed by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus), and (T)ERROR (directed by Lyric Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe) will be world premiering in competition at the festival, held every year in Park City, Utah.
Chicken & Egg Pictures is also proud and excited to see How to Dance in Ohio, directed by Chicken & Egg Pictures Advisory Board member Alexandra Shiva, in the lineup for the US Documentary Competition.
