CMP has 7 documentaries at the Sundance Film Festival 2017!

Paula Froehle

We are thrilled to report that we have supported 7 of the US Documentary films premiering at the Sundance Film Festival January 19-29, 2017!

They represent support from both the non-profit side of CMP as well as CMP I/I, which truly demonstrates the power of community modeled philanthropy through grants and investment.

To give you an idea of how steep the competition was this year, here are the stats:
For the 2017 festival, 113 feature-length films were selected, representing 31 countries and 36 first-time filmmakers, including 19 in competition. These films were selected from 13,782 submissions including 4,068 feature-length films and 8,985 short films. Of the feature film submissions, 2,005 were from the U.S. and 2,063 were international. Ninety-five feature films at the festival will be world premieres.

So without further adieu, our films are:

  • Icarus (CMP I/I)
  • Trophy (CMP I/I)
  • Step (CMP I/I)
  • Dina (CMP I/I)
  • Whose Streets (CMP grant)
  • Strong Island (GPC13, CMP grant, as well as support from individual members)
  •  Bend the Arc (CMP I/I)
