The film Visual Futurist: The Art & Life of Syd Mead, has just won an award from the Dances With Films festival: for best documentary!

The festival founders informed director Joaquin Montalvan (pictured left, with Syd Mead) that the average audience rating for his film was 4.97 out of a possible 5, the highest rating in the history of the nine years that the festival has been operating!

Congratulations to Joaquin! After seeing the short sample clip of the documentary, I knew it would be a huge hit with the fans!
