And the Browncoats have it! This past weekend, FIRE's video "Don't Mess with Firefly! How SciFi Fans Made a Campus Safe for Free Speech" was screened for audiences at FreedomFest in Las Vegas as part of the Anthem Film Festival. We are thrilled to announce that our video, which features legendary author Neil Gaiman, was named the festival's Best Short Documentary at the awards ceremony Saturday.
FIRE would like to thank director Ted Balaker and Korchula Productions, Professor Jim Miller, Neil Gaiman, and Firefly fans everywhere for helping us draw much-needed attention to the serious problem of censorship on campus. Next stop: ComicCon 2013!
