Fire in the Blood to premiere at Sundance Film Festival
Fire in the Blood, a feature-length documentary film produced by Sparkwater India, Mumbai, has been selected for the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, to be held January 17-23 in Park City, Utah, USA, and thus nominated for the coveted Grand Jury Prize. It is a unique achievement for an Indian film to be selected for this competitive section at what is considered to be the world's leading showcase for independent cinema.
"Sundance is the world's most prestigious platform for independent and documentary films, so for our first feature-length production to be selected is a truly immense honour", said Writer/Director/Producer Dylan Mohan Gray. "This, to the best of our knowledge, is the first documentary film of international scale and scope to come out of India, and to be chosen for the World Cinema Documentary Competition and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize out of a massive pool of submissions from talented filmmakers everywhere is extremely encouraging in terms of the future prospects for this film", he added.
Sundance received a record 12,146 submissions this year, among which were over 4000 feature-length films. From these, just 12 U.S. and 12 international films were selected for competition.
