Wrightsville Beach project getting Sundance treatment

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - A local woman's quest to clean up Wrightsville Beach will now get the big screen treatment.

Danielle Richardet is a winner in the Brita FilterForGood Film Project sponsored by the Sundance Film Festival and Brita Water Filters.  WECT featured her story in October and she won by a vote on Facebook.  Three winners were selected out of 150 contestants.

Danielle and her family go to Wrightsville Beach twice weekly to pick up the litter.

Sundance Filmmakers have selected a director for the project -- Destin Cretton.

Danielle won a trip for two to the next Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.  She'll also get a flight, hotel accommodations and tickets to the festival.
