James Morrison’s ‘Diverge’ Wins U.S. In Progress Award in Paris

James Morrison's 'Diverge' Wins U.S. Progress

PARIS– “Diverge,” James Morrison’s debut feature, has won the top award at U.S. in Progress, the forum dedicated to American indie movies that is hosted alongside the Champs Elysees Film Festival and the Paris Coproduction Village.

A sci-fi thriller, “Diverge” follows the journey of a man who survives a global catastrophe and is given a chance to reclaim his life by stopping the man responsible for the cataclysmic event.

Pic is produced by Noah Lang, David Mandel and Matthew Smaglik.

U.S. in Progress was launched by Black Rabbit Film and runs during the Champs Elysees fest as well as the American Film Festival in Wroclaw.

The U.S. in Progress award includes post-production services provided by Titra TVS, Commune Image and Eaux Vives Productions, and an acquisition by French channel Ciné+. As part of the prize, the project will also be pitched at the Producers Network during the next Cannes market.

Last year’s U.S. in Progress winner, “Creative Control” by Benjamin Dickinson, won a nod at SXSW and was eventually picked up by the Coproduction Office.
