Alums win prizes at Sundance Film Festival

Two recent Georgetown graduates were big winners at this weekend’s Sundance Film Festival.

Another Earth, a film directed by Mike Cahill (COL ’01) and starring fellow alum Brit Marling (COL ’05), received the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize and the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend.

Another Earth is a sci-fi drama about what happens when a duplicate planet Earth is discovered.

Cahill and Marling both graduated from the College with majors in economics.

Amazingly, Marling also collaborated with yet another alum, Zal Batmanglij (COL ’02) on their film Sound of my Voice, which was shown at Sundance but did not receive any prizes.

The Alfred P. Sloane award includes a prize of $20,000. Fox Searchlight bought the rights to Another Earth for around $1 million on Wednesday.
