Congratulations to Kate VanDevender for winning
the People's Choice Award
for her hilarious "Actor's Diaries"
short film series! Kate brought down the house with her sly parody
of a young blonde actress trying to get a break in Hollywood.
We hope to be able to show more of her work in the future, although
it may be difficult because she's recently been picked up by a
few networks with exclusive rights.
Congratulations also to Miles Kalbach and Anthony
Serge for the dark comedy, "Sonny Mails
A Letter", which won the Juried
Choice for this year's festival. It was an exceptionally
difficult competition this year due to the number of outstanding
films. The audience had a sound and visual feast from which to
choose, from the scorching deserts of northern Mexico to the surrealistic
landscape of post-apocalyptic, Tim Burtonesque suburbia, the festival
spanned the globe and beyond.
A special thank you to Hal Walker and Paul
Falstad for performing Live Music. Thanks also to
Mike Hovancsek for directing the festival and volunteering
so much time and talent. And finally, thanks to our audience for
such a great turnout and enthusiastic response. We hope everyone
brings a friend next year and we have to hold the festival on
two nights instead of one.
