Kartemquin's Steve James has been selected as the 2010 Coleman Sinking Creek Award winner by the Nashville Film Festival. The award is named after the festival's original name and founder Mary Coleman and is given to "filmmakers who have screened at the festival in the past who continue to exhibit excellence."
We are also happy to announce that the ESPN world television premiere airing of No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson on April 13th acheived the 5th highest ratings for episodes of the 30 for 30 documentary series, achieving an 80% audience increase over it's lead-in show - meaning many viewers tuned in specifically just to watch the film (which we already knew from the massive twitter response!). The repeat screening of the film later that evening on ESPN2 also doubled the audience from it's lead-in show.
No Crossover is available to watch now on iTunes.
Congratulations to Steve James and the entire No Crossover team!
