Woods Hole Film Festival

I am excited to announce that The Lift will be screening at the following festivals:
New Orleans Film Festival
First Glance Film Fest Philadelphia
Atlantic City International Film and Music Festival
Boston Film Festival
Toronto Independent Film Festival

Additionally I just returned from a wonderful weekend at the 19th Woods Hold Film Festival. Kathy, my co-writer also attended. I was lucky enough to have my film screened two times, once at the main screening then a second time at the 20 in 2 hours screening. At the main screening I did a short Q&A with the other filmmakers who were attending.

The festival also did this wonderful filmmaker’s brunch at a house out on Penzance Point which overlooked Buzzard’s Bay. The nightly after parties also made it progressively harder and harder to get up in the morning. We stayed in Falmouth which is just a hop-skip-and-jump away, in fact most days we just biked into Woods Hole for the daytime festivities.

Overall the Woods Hole festival was a class A experience, I had so much fun and all the people who were a part of the festival were just wonderful. There is one thing that you begin to appreciate about well run festivals, communication. Woods Hole never failed to keep me in the loop. I can’t wait to try and submit my next film in 2 years.

Woods Hole Film Festival and others…

I haven’t posted since C2E2, mostly because work has been crazy busy but also I didn’t have all that much too say. Of late, the festivals are starting to pickup. I was just informed that The Lift will be screening at The Woods Hole Film Festival (Woods Hole, MA), Animation Block Party (Brooklyn) and at the Crystal Palace International Film Festival (London).

All of these are so wonderful and I couldn’t be happier, I have to say that its always been a goal to get into the Woods Hole Fest. I have been going up to Falmouth, a town near Woods Hole, since I was little. There was a time when I didn’t want to do art let alone animation, I wanted to be a marine biologist. Woods Hole is the seat of this industry as NOAA is based out of Woods Hole and Bob Ballard’s expeditions to the Titanic were also based out of here. So this one is a little extra sentimental.

That said I HAVE to go I can’t wait to watch my film of of HDCAM and chased with some lobster rolls :D
