Congratulations goes out once again to filmmaker Kyle Bell. Last year he won Best Documentary & Best of Class in the 2015 SWAIA Class X Film Competition for his work on the Native Evolution documentary. This year his documentary on Native pop artist Steven Paul Judd won Best of Class in the Documentary Short category. Woo hoo!


As if that wasn't enough, there were some famous natives at the screening too. What an honor (and maybe a little nerve racking!) to have Adam Beach and Wes Studi in the house to watch your work.



In case you haven't heard about the film yet, check out the official trailer below!

I totally want to watch this one now! Kyle says the film will be screening soon. We'll check back with him and let you know if it'll be in a town near you.


And make sure you follow both of these fine gentlemen on social media!
