Cinereach http://wkms.org en The Morning Cram [swamp land edition] http://wkms.org/post/morning-cram-swamp-land-edition <p></p><p><strong>From NPR: </strong>A small not-for-profit group called <a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/monkeysee/2013/02/20/172410171/from-louisiana-to-versailles-funding-vital-stories-artfully-told">Cinereach</a> is aiming to tell stories that Hollywood overlooks. The mission of the group founded by 20-something New York University grads is to tell “vital stories, artfully told,” and they have financial backers who support that mission. Cinereach had its first big success: the Oscar-nominated <em>Beasts of the Southern Wild</em>, which it helped fund. The not-for-profit started in 2006 when it just had 30 proposals to consider. Now it has 2,500. Wed, 20 Feb 2013 14:31:00 +0000 Whitney Jones 28286 at http://wkms.org The Morning Cram [swamp land edition]
