After it's world premiere on January 26th it was announced yesterday evening at the Slamdance Film Festival Closing Awards Ceremony that Small Talk was awarded the Grand Jury Prize for the Digital Bolex Fearless Filmmaking Showcase. The Digital Bolex Fearless Filmmaking awards were selected by the esteemed panel of industry members Jeremy Osbern, Misti Boland, Lindsey Haun, Michael Dunaway, Ben Kasulke, Leah Shore & Tina Mabry. The jurors noted the decision was unanimous. This honor also includes a distribution deal with Seed&Spark as well as winning a D16 Digital Bolex, something Campbell considers to be life changing.
It was very special for director Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell to receive this award from Digital Bolex's Elle Schneider who was present for the premiere of her first film This Is Not The End, shot on the original H16 Bolex.
After such a wonderful reception, Campbell hopes to continue to share Small Talk with the world in the coming months.
