This may come off as flagwaving, but I have not seen this mentioned on the site -
Congratulations to all involved in Samson & Delilah, 2009 Golden Camera Award at the Cannes International Film Festival. Appears to be shot on Panavision film cameras, but the point of this post is not about the camera technology but one of story, execution and engaging the audience. Not to mention the power of independent film.
The film's website has the trailer and some behind the scenes videos - LINK 2.
