Alum Film Wins Best Documentary at Tribeca

Racing Dreams, a film by Oscar nominated filmmaker Marshall Curry, is receiving tons of praise since it screened last month at the Tribeca Film Festival. Scott Feinberg of the LA Times suggests its, "...the best film of the year, thus far." He goes on to say that ,"the three story lines in Racing Dreams unfold and intersect more rivetingly than most original screenplays... largely because Curry, Matthew Hamachek, and Mary Manhardt were skilled enough to sort through 500 hours of raw footage and tell those stories in just 90 minutes." Editor, Matthew Hamachek is an Edit Center alum and both editor Mary Manhardt and director/editor Marshall Curry have been guest lecturers at TEC. The film won best documentary feature at the festival.
