Slamdance Studios: BIBLE QUIZ
As of June 10 2014, Slamdance Studios' newest release, Bible Quiz, is available on home video and VOD! You can watch the film now on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant, and DVD through Virgil Films.
Bible Quiz, the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival Grand Jury winner, follows seventeen-year-old Mikayla as she memorizes thousands of Bible verses on her quest to win the National Bible Quiz Championship and the heart of JP, her quiz team captain. This John Hughes-eque documentary explores coming of age in the midst of faith, doubt, fierce competition, and teen love.
In March of 2014, Slamdance Studios began the limited US theatrical release of Bible Quiz at New York City's IFC Center, The Downtown Independent in Los Angeles, and Alamo Drafthouse theaters for dates in Houston, Kalamazoo, Lubbock and Austin.
"Debuting Bible Quiz at Slamdance was life changing," says Teeny, "and we're incredibly excited to have audiences around the country connect with our film."
"As we've worked with Nicole at the festival as well as part of our On The Road series we feel that she is a great emerging filmmaking talent and her film will find an even bigger audience," explains Peter Baxter, president of Slamdance Film Festival and Studios.
Praise for Bible Quiz:
stuck with me like no other film this year. It has the potential to be a film that people will remember for years to come. - San Francisco Bay Guardian
An approach that's as unassuming as its almost instantly lovable subject - The Hollywood Reporter
Nicole Teeny's documentary about young love and the role religion can play is simple, unbiased and ultimately quite moving - IndieWire
an unpredictable pleasure - Los Angeles Times
vulnerable and charming - LA Weekly
It’s a nicely drawn character piece that hits so many chords about what it’s like to be a teenager. While the tiny budget and team of newbie filmmakers are almost always in evidence, this doc more than makes up for it in heart. - NonFics.Com
