Grant Recipient Winners

Kodama is an action feature film by Brian Tang and follows the story of Arthur, a member of an elite SWAT Samurai team, who enters a spirit world in order to rescue his father from vengeful Japanese folklore spirits known as Yokai.

Show Business Is My Life, But I Can't Prove It is a feature documentary from Heather Wilk. Comedian Gary Mule Deer’s career has always taken an oddball path. From his start in “show business” at a South Dakota brothel, performing Johnny Cash covers for the awaiting johns, to his over 350 televised performances, his career has been as strange as his comedy itself. He’s odd, he’s got crazy hair, and his metronomic timing is legendary. He’s a friend to the biggest names in comedy and music and he may just be the funniest comedian you’ve never heard of. Featuring Vince Gill, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien. Steve Martin, Alice Cooper, Amy Grant and more...

Stripper Boyz is a feature documentary from Stephen Sanow and Joe Fahey. In an attempt to prove his friendship, a jobless filmmaker takes his friend on a bizarre bachelor party where they try to become male strippers in Vegas.

Untitled Gray/Roth Documentary is a feature documentary from Alexandra Dickson Gray. Twenty years after making Sundance competition documentary Close to Home (which contrasted five personal accounts of child sexual abuse with the chilling statements of convicted sex offenders), filmmakers Alexandra (Ali) Dickson Gray and Academy Award winner Vanessa Roth revisit the same brave souls in Untitled Gray/Roth Documentary who previously shared their lives to highlight the lifelong medical, psychological and generational impact of child sexual assault.
