CMP was excited to hear Samantha Montgomery, aka Princess Shaw, on Morning Edition today! Ido Haar's emotional documentary PRESENTING PRINCESS SHAW, about her rise to internet fame, was a crowd-pleasing favorite at our festival DOC10, and Samantha brought the house down with a closing night performance at Uncommon Ground. If you missed the film, listen below to learn more!
In other DOC10 alum news, fans of Barbara Kopple's MISS SHARON JONES! will be glad to hear it had finalized a distribution deal with Starz Digital, and will have a theatrical run late this summer before a digital and home video release this fall. Congrats to the Cabin Creek team on getting this wonderful film out to the world!
NOTES ON BLINDNESS will also get a much-deserved theatrical run now that is has confirmed a deal with Oscilloscope, which was finalized last week during Cannes, where the film's companion piece "Into Darkness" was playing in the virtual reality lineup.
Lastly, be on the lookout for AUDRIE & DAISY soon on Netflix, and share with your community. The film is making waves at festivals and with survivors groups and legislators. We can't wait to see the impact this story can have!
