Bunker 15 swoons for Song of Sway Lake’s jazzy, ambient rhythms

[Los Angeles, CA]: Bunker 15 is thrilled to announce the winner of its first annual Critic Awards, Song of Sway Lake. In the process, the Bunker 15 team combed through over 100 inspiring and moving submissions from around the world. It was a difficult task to pick a winner from the incredible films received, but ultimately it was Ari Gold’s musical meditation on how our memories of the past shape the reality of our future that won the honor.

“I wish we could have picked many deserving filmmakers. But in the end, we had to pick one. Song of Sway Lake was such a beautifully shot and skillfully made film. The music, acting and the mood that it sustains throughout are just incredible. The cast is from all generations and the writing has something to say about youth, age and life in general. I saw the film and thought: this is what we wish for in Indie filmmaking.”, said Daniel Harlow, CEO of Bunker 15 Films.

Breathtaking cinematography highlights powerful performances by Rory Culkin and Robert Sheehan. Song of Sway Lake opens in 13 U.S. cities in late September of 2018 and on VOD on September 25th, 2018. The film is being distributed by The Orchard and The Film Collaborative.
Bunker 15’s Critic Awards were established this year to provide professional promotion services to a deserving independent film. Bunker 15 is passionate about promoting incredible, yet sometimes under-the-radar, films to the industry’s most sought after critics and writers. The team looks forward to continuing this tradition next year and uncovering new, excellent films.
As the winner of the Critic Awards, Song of Sway Lake will receive an exclusive promotional package from Bunker 15 Films. This includes $15,000 worth of targeted publicity to the most relevant writers around the world in anticipation of the film’s worldwide VOD release.
