SXSW Award Winners

GIMME THE LOOT

The African-American drama GIMME THE LOOT and the music documentary BEWARE MR. BAKER were the big winners at the SXSW Film Awards, each winning Grand Jury Prizes. Sundance Selects has acquired North American and Latin American rights to GIMME THE LOOT, the feature debut of Adam Leon, which is making its New York debut at New Directors/New Films this weekend. In the film, two determined teens from the Bronx are the ultimate graffiti-writers. When a rival gang buffs their latest masterpiece, they must hatch a plan to get revenge by tagging an iconic NYC landmark, but they need to raise $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme. BEWARE MR. BAKER is a profile of rock drummer Ginger Baker, whose outsized personality and personal excess were legendary casualties of the rock era.
