Special Jury Prize from Michael Moore!

We are delighted to announce that SMILE 'TIL IT HURTS: The Up With People Story won a Special Jury Prize at the Traverse City Film Festival. It was an incredible experience winning an award from Michael Moore and participating on his "Dangerous Docs" panel. It's kind of funny because SMILE isn't "dangerous" unless you imagine sword fighting with feathers. But the documentary does move audiences and generates discussion about an ideologically divided America over the past 40 years. This was one of the best festivals I've ever attended---the quality of movies to the quality of 1200 volunteer staff. It was an experience I'll never forget. Way to go, MICHIGAN!

Here are a couple of interviews at the Traverse City Film Festival.
