We were selected as finalists… now you can help us win

There I was, about to fall asleep, taking a good rest away from a marathon week of script writing for this awesome Cortazar documentary I've told you all so much about, when my phone started to explode. Retweets, mentions, FB posts lighting it up like a little rectangular Christmas tree.

So I took a look. And I was floored. Julio and Carol - a new documentary about love, Cortazar and literature - had been hand selected as a project of the week finalist by IndieReign, one of the Internet's largest indie film distribution networks. Let me say that again. Out of all the thousands of film project on all the thousands of Crowdfunding platforms, they picked ours as a finalist for this contest.

So that felt great.

But you know what would feel really, super, extra special? If we WON this thing. It means $100 bucks into the project... but more importantly it means getting featured on this incredible website, which is a hub for thousands of filmmakers and ever more indie film lovers, buyers and supporters world wide. It could be a huge difference!

So… if you would take just two seconds to help us win this thing, there couldn't be anything easier.

Simply click to vote - that's it. You just helped us win.

Road map to love: Pagina 12 coverage

We had another huge break through with Latin America this week, again, with Pagina 12 picking up the story of Julio Cortazar, Carol Dunlop, and the documentary exploring their love, deaths and the famous book they'd write at the end.

They did a great job highlighting the quest here. The truth is this all started with us asking the question: what the hell is love? Why can't everyone have what these two had in their book, Autonauts of the Cosmoroute? What is so wild and different about their connection, and why is it so powerful?
