The experimental romantic comedy "Four Eyed Monsters" won the 2006 Sundance Channel Audience Award at this year's "indieWIRE: Undiscovered Gems" film series. The autobiographical film, in which director/stars Susan Buice and Arin Crumley blend fact and fiction to document their developing relationship, won a theatrical release through Emerging Pictures and a television premiere on Sundance Channel. "Monsters" recently nabbed two 2007 Independent Spirit Award noms for best cinematography and the John Cassavetes award for the best feature made for less than $500,000.
