Film about Russia receives special jury award at Sundance
The documentary “Love. Love. Love” by Indian filmmaker Daisy Sundaram has received a short film special jury award for non-fiction at the annual Sundance film festival held in Park City, Utah.
The film was the result of Sundaram's participation in 2013's Cinetrain, a Russian cinema project in which filmmakers from around the world travel by train across Siberia for one month, completing a film on a given topic.
The Syrian film “Of God and Dogs” won the Grand jury prize. Jury prizes also went to the American films “Gregory Go Boom” and “Rat Pack Rat,” the Canadian film “The Cut,” and “Burger,” from the UK.
Short film award recipients will be honored at the Festival’s feature film Awards Ceremony, hosted by Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, on January 25 at 6:00 p.m. MT and live-streamed at youtube.com/sff.
The Sundance Film Festival, founded in part by actor Robert Redford to support independent cinema and theater, runs Jan. 16-26.
