Felt Soul Media's "Red Gold" Wins Big at Telluride Film Festival

May 28, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

As we noted last month, “Red Gold,” a film about the controversy surrounding the building of a mine in the middle of a critically important Alaska watershed, was to hold its premiere at the prestigious Telluride MountainFilm festival. Now the votes are counted, and Travis Rummel’s and Ben Knight’s work came away with both the Festival Director’s Award and the Audience Award, which, as the MountainFilm site notes, is considered by some distributors to be “a much better harbinger of success for a film than a juried award.”
