Brief: Indiegogo Success “Tower” Named SXSW’s Best Documentary

Last week, Indiegogo alum Tower was named “Best Documentary” at the 2016 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival, which was held in Austin, Texas.

TowerThe global crowdfunding platform described Tower, which was directed by Keith Maitlandas the following:

“50 years ago, America’s first mass school shooting at the University of Texas left dozens wounded or dead and a shaken nation left trying to understand. TOWER is an animated and action-packed documentary, revealing the untold stories of the witnesses, heroes and survivors of this historic event.”

Tower raised more than $50,000 on Indiegogo in 2014 and made its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival 2016. The Hollywood Reporter‘s review notably called the film “a gripping combination of oral history and stylized reenactment.”

Tower also received the Lone Star Award at the festival. See the film’s trailer below.
