FUSION’s upcoming feature documentary Science Fair has been selected by the Sundance Institute and it will make its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
Science Fair follows nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries, setbacks, and of course, hormones, on their journey to compete at the international science fair. Facing off against 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries, only one will be named Best in Fair.
The documentary is directed by first-time filmmaker Cristina Costantini along with Darren Foster and is produced by Costantini, Foster, and Jeffrey Plunkett.
Cristina Costantini is an Emmy-nominated investigative producer who has been a part of FUSION’s investigative documentary unit since the cable network’s launch in 2013. She has won four awards from the National Association for Hispanic Journalists. Darren Foster is a Peabody Award winning producer. Foster and Costantini previously won an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for their work on the FUSION documentary, “The Naked Truth: Death by Fentanyl.”
Every year the Sundance Institute showcases bold, independent storytelling at its annual film festival in Park City, Salt Lake City. More information the other feature films and documentaries selected for the 2018 festival here.
