Swimmers to be distributed by Skouras Films

Swimmers, the project of the January 2004 Edit Center class, has been purchased for distribution by Skouras Films.  Swimmers will be released in theaters next year and will then air on the Sundance Channel.  This follows the film's recent win at the Seattle Film Festival, where it was awarded the Grand Jury Prize for Best New American Film.  Swimmers was directed by Doug Sadler and edited by Edit Center alum Lilah Bankier and Edit Center instructor Affonso Goncalves.
