We're very pleased to have The Neon Struggle accepted at the Krafta International Art Making Film Festival. This festival is all about films about art and artists. We were advised that we were one of the finalists back in March, and now we were notified that our film is actually being shown at the Festival and is in consideration for prizes! We think this festival is important for our film and we will be looking at attending the Festival in Scotland at the end of September!
A script that we wrote for a short film, tentatively titled The Santa Trust has been accepted at the Oaxaca Film Festival in Oaxaca, Mexico. We are in the short competition and since we are one of the selected shorts, we are automatically entered in the overall script competition. The grand prize is $10,000 which we could sure use to make that film!
Oh, and we're supposed to keep this quiet until September. Really?
The Los Angeles Feedback Film Festival is a new one for us. We're driving to L.A. and meeting some friends for dinner before we see The Neon Struggle!
Really cool to be in the audience and get direct feedback about your film! We ended up winning Best Documentary and Best Music! We like this Festival!
We're repeat exhibitors at the American Documentary Film Festival in Palm Springs and though we have never won an award here, we're always happy to be included. This year, The Neon Struggle is being shown at the Camelot Theatre in Palm Springs!
We're traveling to Las Cruces, New Mexico again! Last year we were very pleased to be awarded their Best Documentary award for our film, 88 Days in the Mother Lode, and this year they will be showing The Neon Struggle. It's always an honor just be shown in a Festival since the competition is always strong. Las Cruces is no exception. Last year the folks in New Mexico were gracious and hospitable and we had a wonderful time. This year, we have no expectations of winning - we're in the Documentary Short category - but we're excited to return to the amazing Southwest!
We're really proud that The Neon Struggle is premiering at The Annenberg Theater in the Palm Springs Art Museum during Modernism Week. Preceding the first showing of the film is a lecture by Eric Lynxwiler from the Musem of Neon Art in Glendale. Of course the stars of the film, Rio and Fine Score and their entire family will be there to see it. We are looking forward to the audience reaction!
