Awarded to one of the 16 U.S. films in the Dramatic Competition, the 2008 Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic went to Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River. The film tells the story of a desperate trailer mom and a Mohawk woman who team up to smuggle illegal immigrants into the United States from Canada. Accepting the award, Hunt said, “Thanks to Sundance Institute because without these programmers, this film could easily have been lost....I believe in a universe of abundance and I believe that every filmmaker here will find their perfect audience.”
This is the second Sundance Winner to be screened in the Forman Room
"Frozen River" gets 2 Oscar Nominations!
It was screened in the Forman Screening room where Mark Forman made technical suggestions on selected scenes before it won Sundance last year.
