Beasts of the Southern Wild has had the incredible honor of traveling across the globe, playing on screens and in front of audiences we never quite imagined possible. This past week, we had the privilege of screening at the Reykjavik Film Festival where Beasts of the Southern Wild was awarded with the Golden Puffin, the highest honor at the fest.
"The jury lauded the film 'for its spirit of storytelling, visual inventiveness and creative audacity, which marks Benh Zeitlin as a leading figure for the next generation of independent film artists'."
Many thanks to Iceland and as we like to say around these parts, welcome to the Bathtub!
