  • The Desert of Forbidden Art wins for Best Documentary Feature

    By staff, Apr 28, 2010

    We are excited to share that our film just won the Best Documentary Feature Award at the Palm Beach International Film Festival.

    Documentary jurors Rob Davis and Aaron Wells commented, "This year's documentary category featured an excellent slate of remarkable films dealing with a broad array of fascinating subjects. Having a number of exceptional films is both a blessing and curse to the jury members - it makes watching the films an incredibly enjoyable process, but it makes judging them a very difficult task. This year's winner, tells an engaging story in an innovative, artistic style. The film details one individual's incredible lifetime commitment to preserve works of art representing a nearly forgotten artistic movement and visits the museum in a remote part of the world where the artistic works are preserved and exhibited."
