At the end of the week, Indiewire will hold a public poll to determine its "Project of the Week," and then, at the end of the month, another poll to determine the "Project of the Month." The winner of the "Project of the Week" title receives a consultation with Snag Films and the winner of the "Project of the Month" title receives a consultation with Sundance.
CMCL PhD student Russell Sheaffer' film, Masculinity/Femininity, has won the Project of the Day. Our votes can help it become the Project of the Month.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the project, Masculinity/Femininity is an experimental film based project that aims to question normative notions of gender. Shot primarily on Super 8mm film (but simultaneously shot digitally and incorporating text-based elements), the project will operate as a cross between academic and practical critique -- acting more as a document of gender construction rather than a documentary about gender construction.

Once again, please share this link with your networks. We are up against some really inspiring films this week and need every single vote possible (often the winner of the project of the week only wins by a few votes). It is absolutely crucial that the word get out as far and wide as possible and I can't thank you enough for forwarding along this email along to your colleagues, friends, and anyone who will listen.
