Meet the Caucus Foundation 2016 Grantees

"We're extremely honored to receive this award from the Caucus Foundation. It's a testament to the hard work of our entire team and to the powerful vision of our director. Not only did this grant allow us to finish post production in a sane way but it validated our film. On behalf of the whole cast and crew, I thank the Caucus Foundation for believing in us, for its support and more importantly, for this incredible honor."
