It is no secret that creatives fuel one another — artists thrive in the company of other fellow creators and risk takers. Either in formal collectives, such as Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg’s Dogme 95, or gatherings as informal as blogs and chat rooms, community is key to the artistic process and final work.
Honora joins this tradition by premiering four new episodic series, all which feature emerging talent. Backing breakout favorites such as David Cross’s “Hits!” and Demetri Martin’s directorial debut “Dean”, which garnished top prize at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Honora has partnered with the next wave of rising talent in nonfiction, stand up comedy, and dramatic episodic series. Now streaming exclusively on BitTorrent, Honora presents works from Tota Sigurdardottir, Andy De Young, Simon Gibson, Alex Klein, Brett Simon and others.
