SEMBENE! Selected for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival is one of the world's most prestigious film festivals. More than 12,000 films submitted, with fewer than 2 percent selected. That's why we are so happy to share our big news: SEMBENE! will be premiering at this year's Sundance Film Festival, which takes place January 22 through February 1. 

We'll join one of the most amazing list of films that have premiered in Park City: BOYHOOD, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, MAN ON WIRE, HOOP DREAMS, SUPER SIZE ME, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, MEMENTO, GRIZZLY MAN, BUCK, SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN and 20 FEET FROM STARDOM.

SEMBENE! is one of 16 films selected for the International Documentary Competition. 

This news makes your support all the more important. If we reach our Kickstarter goal, we'll be that much closer to bringing SEMBENE! to the wide audience we believe it deserves.
