Exciting news and updates!
First of all, enjoy this:
Okay now back to business...
Over the past couple of months some pretty cool awards have been announced! Check out the images and links below and thanks to everyone for your continued support of Hollow!
At this point, everyone should have received all of their rewards (with the exception of a couple screenings). If you have any questions or have not received your award please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finalist for the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam's Doc Lab

Two Platinum Awards for Sound Design

Find us in Oregon
Hollow is featured for Eastern Oregon's Film Festival's Online Selection.
The rise of digital cinema has shown that 20th Century exhibition models are increasingly insufficient. Cinema is in constant flux, and without adapting to changes in the distribution landscape, most filmmakers cannot survive. We believe that festivals’ inclusion of online works is progressive, and vital to independent cinema. The Internet also serves as a temporary home for some of the more intimate, experimental works that move us.
Hollow's debut in Paris
Hollow was chosen for the 2014 FIFE film festival (in Paris) as part of their Web Documentary category. We're out of competition (because of English-only/no subtitles) but very honored to be selected for this French film festival!
We gave everyone a look under the hood
