TEC class project, Frozen River, wins at Sundance and more

Congratulations Frozen River for receiving the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at this year's Sundance Film Festival! Frozen River, directed by Courtney Hunt, was the May/June 6-week class project. Congrats to everyone who worked on it! Also premiering at Sundance was The Recruiter (formerly An American Solider), edited by Edit Center alumni, Chad Beck and Adam Bolt. It received a positive review in VARIETY and THE ADVOCATE, "For all the talk about putting a "human face" on the war in Iraq, there may be no better vehicle than The Recruiter, the devastating new documentary from director Edet Belzburg." Congratulations are also in order for TEC Alum Michael Taylor and TEC instructor Geoffrey Richman. They edited The Order of the Myths, directed by Margaret Brown, which Manohla Dargis of the NY TIMES said was "...Handsomely shot and intelligently edited."
