Little Accidents Director Sara Colangelo Wins Tangerine Juice Award at the Hamptons

Congratulations to Filmmaker 25 New Face Sara Colangelo, who was awarded today the Tangerine Juice Award at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Created to honor a female first- or second-time narrative feature director, the prize comes with $1,000 cash and five hours of consultation with Tangerine Entertainment.

Starring Elizabeth Banks, Boyd Holbrook and Chloe Sevigny, Little Accidents is a drama set in the aftermath of the disappearance of a teenager in a small American coal-mining town. It premiered at Sundance 2014 and will be released by Amplify.

“The competition for our award was tough this year,” said Tangerine co-founder Anne Hubbell in a statement. “We commend the festival on their choices and for programming 50% of the narrative competition with movies by women directors.”

From the press release:

The Tangerine Juice Fund is a crowdsourced, donation-based fund that encourages filmmakers to support other filmmakers by making tax deductible contributions. Awards are given at several domestic film festivals, including the upcoming Woodstock Film Festival later this month.

Tangerine Entertainment is a production company and community builder for films by women directors. Hubbell founded the company in 2013 with producing partner, Amy Hobby.
