  1. i’m so excited to see the recognition “Sugarman” is receiving! Such a wonderful film..! if you have not seen it…go go go

  2. The Queen of Versailles is fantastic. It’s like a wonderful slow motion train wreck, that you just can’t turn away from. My only complaint is that I wish it was nine hours longer.

  3. Documentaries like ‘The Invisible War’ are changing systemic problems in our culture.
    This film has initiated change in our legislation, medical trauma treatment programs, military justice system and general conscientiousness!
    Congratulations to the brave filmmakers!
