TWO Davey Grant films headed to SXSW!

We’re excited to announce that Lauren Wolkstein‘s BEEMUS: IT’LL END IN TEARS, and Ben Kegan‘s THE FIRST MEN are screening at SXSW this March in Austin, Texas!  Lauren’s short, for which she received a Davey Foundation grant in 2015, is about a high school gym teacher who runs drills from inside a volcano,  and is part of a feature film project COLLECTIVE:UNCONSCIOUS that brings five of independent film’s most adventurous filmmakers together to literally adapt each other’s dreams for the screen. Ben’s film, for which he received a Davey Foundation grant in 2014, is about an overextended teacher who bumps into a troubled student while at the mall with her mom, and is based on a Pushcart Prize winning short story by Stacey Richter.
