For our 11th annual K+S in NY, we launched a new honor: the Player Pass Award. This new award is determined by a vote by attendees who purchased the K+S Player Pass — our full-festival ticket package. (Note: Only Player Pass attendees unaffiliated with any of the films were eligible to vote.)
The inaugural Player Pass Award winner is Soccertown USA, directed by Robert Penzel.
Soccertown USA, which received its world premiere at K+S New York 2019, tells the story of Kearny, NJ, hometown of US World Cup stars Tony Meola, Tab Ramos, and John Harkes. It is, in many ways, ground zero for the modern soccer movement in America.
