The 2018 Sundance Film Festival which ran from the 18th to the 28th of January awarded 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post' the top prize in the U.S. Dramatic competition. Olivier Kaempfer, who is both an MA Filmmaking alumnus and current school governor, was an executive producer on the film with his company Parkville Pictures, who produced the project.
'The Miseducation of Cameron Post', is Parkville Pictures' and Kaempfer' fourth feature, and is based on the 2012 Emily Danforth novel of the same name. The story, which follows a Montana teenager sent to a gay conversion camp by her conservative aunt, was directed by Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behaviour), and funded by Beachside Films. Cameron Post stars Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Sasha Lane (American Honey).
Congratulations to all involved in the film on this major success!
