The Film's Bright Premiere
Beasts of the Southern Wild made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2012. (It was finished only two days before.)

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Dwight said he saw himself on film for the very first time alongside other audience members at Sundance. The film took home the Grand Jury Prize that day, along with an award for cinematography.
