Iíve only seen the Netflix version. Wow is all I have to say!! How many people blindly followed this guy. I canít imagine being in that situation and continuing on with the sham as they got closer to the date. Excellent show seeing it from so many different peopleís perspectives!

I saw them both. IMO the NEetflix one was better because it talked more about how we got from point A to pont B. The Hulu one to me felt very convoluted seemed like they had an interview with Billy McFarland and tried to make a documentary around it. The Netflix one gave us an understanding of how this was really never about creating a festival as much as it was creating a promotion for an app.

Also, I dont think anyone really "blindly followed" him. I think people found themselves in positions where they were stuck and had to make do with what they had

Both films are getting some criticism for being unethical documentaries-- for the Netflix one the F#$@Jerry team served as producers, which affects impartiality, and the Hulu producers paid McFarland for his interview, which is generally a no-no.

I eard both criticisms before watching them and still the Netflix one seemed more genuine and really the JerryMedia (old name) team was really just promoting the event based on what was given them. Their commentary made enough sense that it was easy to take it as truth

Paying Billy McGarland (by Hulu) really didnt do anything because his interview was the worst part of the docu.

Interviewer: "what charges are you facing"
Billy: "I cant speak on pending litigation"
Interviewer: "you cant even tell us what you are being chaged with?"
Billy: "I cant speak on pending litigation"

I just finished he Hulu version, definitely not as good. I would have been very confused if I had not watched Netflix first.
