In addition to the award given to HIDING BLAME, we are happy to announce that BLOOD RELATIONS was recognized by the Oregon Film Awards committee as an “Official Finalist.” Sincere thanks go out to James Nicholas and the rest of the OFA committee for these two honors. Thank you, thank you.

OIFFClintonMarqueeOIFFQLLGreat crowd at tonight’s screening of Hiding Blame at the Clinton Street Theater as part of the Oregon Independent Film Festival – our Portland premiere! It was especially lovely to have lead actor Quigley Provost-Landrum in the audience. Thanks to everyone who came out for the screening.

willifest.logo2Thank you Willifest!!! What a festival! The screening of HIDING BLAME this evening at the Williamsburg Cinema was a definite highpoint in our little film’s career. A huge thank you to everyone involved in this festival, which was so well-organized and curated. We met many super cool, kind, and generous people at the festival (and everywhere in Brooklyn—we LOVE this city!), but I want to give a special shout out to Stella McGovern, Marc Kess, and Jill Schissel for all of their helpful advice and support. It was an honor to be screened — and stand, (as part of the Q&A) — with so many talented and passionate filmmakers. To the cast and crew of Hiding Blame: Please know you were well received and can be very proud of the work you did! Thank you all.

OaxacaYellowonBlackMost excellent news! Blood Relations has been chosen as an official selection in the Global Script Challenge at the Oaxaca FilmFest, happening October 9-17. This is an exciting international festival, ranked by MovieMaker magazine in 2013 as one of the Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee. This year the festival will also provide the stage for the Sundance Institute Artist Services Workshops. The festival had a record number of submissions this year, and we are honored to be among the scripts chosen to participate.
