"Wow. Lucky number 13, I guess? Kind of at a loss for words here," stumbled Denver-based filmmaker Josh Berman of Level 1 Productions, accepting the prize for Best Movie last night at the 2013 Powder Awards in Park City on opening night of the Sundance Film Festival. "To actually spend the last twelve years watching the movie producers that I grew up with being inspired by taking all the prizes, it's kind of mind-blowing to be up here."

Sunny is Berman's thirteenth film for Level 1 Productions in as many years -- but his first to win top honors at the annual Powder Awards ceremony, presented by Powder Magazine. The film, which Berman co-directed with Kyle Decker, beat out The Eighty Six, from Boulder-based Stept Productions; The Dream Factory from Teton Gravity Research; and Few Words, from Process Films. Sunny -- edited by Decker, Berman and Freedle Coty -- also won in the Best Editing category.
