We’re excited to announce that The Donut Dollies has been nominated for Best Documentary at the Victory International Film Festival in Evansville, IN. We’ll be announcing the details of our VIFF screening in the coming days, but we couldn’t wait to share this exciting news with you. We thank the Victory International Film Festival for nominating us and for including our film in this year’s festival.
The response to our film has been has been resoundingly positive, whether through virtual screenings or on the big screen, we’ve received praise from Donut Dollies, veterans, the public, film festival staff and the media. We undertook this project to document and preserve the story of the Donut Dollies and to add this little known part of American and women’s history into the record for posterity. We thank all of the Donut Dollies and veterans who served, and those who have shared their stories with us online (www.donutdollies.com or www.facebook.com/thedonutdollies), who have taken part in interviews and shared their photos, film and memorabilia to help us tell the most complete story possible. We also would like to thank the Donut Dollies, veterans, family, friends and fans who have provided the support that has allowed us to create and present this film.
We look forward to making the Donut Dollies Documentary available later this year for viewing in your own home.
