We only just found out about yet another award win for The Interrupters. The film - already a Jury Prize winner at both the Miami and Full Frame Festivals, as well being the recipient of the True Life Fund from True/False - also picked up the Audience Award for Best Documentary from Philadelphia Cinefest last week. Congratulations to the entire team, and thanks to Philadelphia Cinefest attendees for the honor!
"With a great heart that makes yours grow three sizes every damn minute...The Interrupters is an absolute winner. Directed gorgeously by Steve James, The Interrupters is a beautiful piece of documentary filmmaking that despite its nearly three hour long runtime, is one of the most watchable documentaries in quite some time."
