New KODAK Director's Award, WIF Product Grant to be Presented at Slamdance & Sundance
 
ROCHESTER, NY (January 19, 2015) - Kodak will once again support the independent filmmaking community at the Slamdance and Sundance Film Festivals, which run concurrently in Park City, Utah, beginning Jan. 21. 
At Slamdance, the inaugural KODAK Director's Award will be presented on Jan. 29 during the festival's awards ceremony. The winner, who will be chosen by a jury of Slamdance judges, will receive a KODAK Product grant valued at $10,000.
 
Over on Main Street at the Sundance Film Festival, Women In Film (WIF) will present a KODAK Product grant for 5,000 feet of film as part of their Women In Film/The Incentives Office Grant on Jan.  25. This award - chosen by a jury of educators, filmmakers and artists from WIF - is presented to a female director in the Sundance Film Festival Shorts Program.
 
"These two festivals showcase innovative filmmakers who bring fresh ideas and a new perspective to the screen every year, and Kodak is dedicated to supporting their art," says Andrew Evenski, President and General Manager for Entertainment & Commercial Films at Kodak . "Motion picture film plays an important role in the indie community, giving these unique storytellers the creative freedom and option to tell their stories as they envisioned."
 
Many films screening at Sundance were produced on KODAK Film, including A Walk in the Woods (Dir Ken Kwapis, DP John Bailey, ASC); Christmas, Again (Dir Charles Poekel, DP Sean Price Williams); Digging for Fire (Dir Joe Swanberg, DP Ben Richardson); I Smile Back (Dir Adam Salky, DP Eric Lin); Mississippi Grind (Dirs Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, DP Andrij Parekh); and Umrika (Dir Prashant Nair, DP Petra Korner), among others. At Slamdance, Tired Moonlight (Dir Britni West, DP Adam Ginsberg) chose Kodak film, alongside several shorts in the lineup.
 
Both held in Park City, Slamdance takes place Jan. 23-29, and Sundance runs Jan. 21-31.

Thank you Kodak. I shoot film as much and as often as I can. Film is always my first choice. Actually using it in a sizzle reel for a reality show.
