Economist Film Project selects Up in Smoke

From many thousands of entries, we are thrilled to announce that Up in Smoke was selected by the Economist Film Project, and a specially edited clip will be showcased on PBS Newshour to over 4 million US viewers on 9th June 2011, one day before its World Premiere at the Sheffield Doc Festival

The Economist Film Project represents an expansion for the London-based publication, which does not produce films. Announced in December as a joint venture between “The Economist” and PBS NewsHour, the project looks to both seasoned and up-and-coming filmmakers. “We don’t do documentary films at ‘The Economist,’” said Gideon Lichfield, Editorial Director of The Economist Film Project, “but we want to promote the kinds of films we would make if we knew how to make them.”
