Congratulations to In the Family and Editor Leslie Simmer!

Congratulations to Leslie Simmer and the entire In the Family crew for their "Best Editing" win at last night's "Best of the Midwest Awards" (BMAs). The awards, hosted by the Midwest Independent Film Festival, spotlight documentary and independent feature work from around the Midwest.

Kartemquin's Steve James presented the award for Best Documentary, and Joanna Rudnick and Justine Nagan also attended the ceremony on behalf of the organization. A surprising and fun Kartemquin Films shout-out from Actor John C. Reilly during his acceptance speech, read by Director Steve Conrad, rounded out the night.
