The nominees for Powder Magazine's 2013 Powder Awards were announced last week, and Colorado film crews -- including Denver-based Level 1 Productions, Boulder-based Stept Productions, and Crested Butte-based Matchstick Productions (MSP Films) and Two Plank Productions -- are heavy in the mix in just about every category, including Movie of the Year. The awards will be presented on Thursday, January 17, opening night of the Sundance Film Festival at Park City Live in Park City, Utah, and will be webcast live at www.PowderMag.com/Powder-Awards.
