Life With Lupus is the 1st Selection for the 2013 YoungCuts Film Festival

Congratulations to Giovanna Gatto and her team!

In December, we put 20 films that were not picked for the 2012 YoungCuts Film Festival into a Repechage or Second Chance Gallery, to give the general public the chance to vote for the film that they thought we had made the biggest mistake on.

The winner was picked based on a combination of views, votes and highest rating as of January 31st, 2013.

It was extraordinarily close.

The difference between the top 2 films came down to a difference of 72 views, with one film winning best rating, the other winning most votes and the two films finishing 3rd & 4th in views. And the 3rd place film was right behind both films.

Best Rating:

  1. Life With Lupus
  2. This PSA is Gay
  3. Feathered Bullets
  4. Jokers
  5. Black Roses
