FILMSpellbound wins documentary prize, 2002
Jeffrey Blitz’s documentary about eight kids at the 1999 Scripps National Spelling Bee premiered at SXSW in 2002 and walked away with the jury award for Best Documentary Feature. Thanks to SXSW, the doc enjoyed a healthy festival and theatrical run that ended with an Academy Award nomination for Documentary Feature. Not bad for a first time filmmaker. —Lindsey Bahr
