I just returned from an amazing trip to attend the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, WI. This was my fourth time attending Flyway and it's always a wonderful experience but this time it was extra special because we won an award! Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard on this film - we did it, we won Best Narrative Short Film!
After an amazing trip to Montreal to screen 'Vivienne Again' at the Mascara & Popcorn Film Festival – where we won an Audience Award! – Heather Buckley writes up a great recap of the event for Fangoria magazine. She covers all of the highlights and weird & wonderful goings on that make M&P so great. And she so kindly gives our film a shout-out, too. Thanks, Heather!
It was an amazing festival overall with a Black Carpet event on opening night, five blocks of horror, sci-fi and thriller films screening throughout the weekend, and an Awards Gala (with Zombie Karaoke!) on the final day.
Festival Director Florence Touliatos is an absolutely amazing host and we were thrilled to be a part of this very cool, up-and-coming festival.
Je t'aime Montréal et Mascara & Popcorn!
This past weekend "Vivienne Again" won a Kickstarter Jury Award at the 2012 Flyway Film Festival! It was an extraordinary weekend of great films, events and people, all in beautiful Pepin, WI. We were thrilled to win this award and sincerely thank everyone who voted for our film. The award itself is as unique as this festival -- it's an 8"x8" "axe" head made from gray granite. I'm holding it in the photo above and it's heavy as hell. Which, as it turns out, is exactly how I like my awards. Thanks, Flyway!
