This is definitely a first for me. I received the same message from three film folks I know. Each wanted to spread the word that they’d made it to the semifinalist round of the “Focus Forward” competition, which means they’re currently vying for the Audience Favorite Award. Woot woot!
“Focus Forward is an unprecedented new series of 30 three-minute stories about innovative people who are reshaping the world through act or invention, directed by the world’s most celebrated documentary filmmakers.”
The US Presidential election may have come, but everyday indies are running their own campaigns for personal projects. So here’s a shameless plug for semifinalist films from a few of my filmmaker friends:

The voting for the Audience Favorite is open to the public. Check out the top entries HERE before December 20th!
