"Thank you to the Caucus Foundation for honoring us with this prestigious award. The grant was a major boost to the production of our film and not just in the financial sense. It meant a great deal to everyone involved in the production to know that a prestigious organization like the Caucus believed in what we were doing and supported us. Because of this grant we were able to see the vision of the film through to the end in a way that honored the efforts of the cast and crew who helped make it. I will be forever grateful for this grant and the recognition of the Caucus."
