brenda matthews, beat around the bush, short film, brianne nord-StewartThis news could not have come on a more needed day.

BEAT AROUND THE BUSH won Best Short at the 12th Broad Humor Film Festival in Venice, California!

I think it can now be an official fact that whenever I am unable to attend a festival, we win an award. Basically, I should never travel and we’ll do really well!

Thank you to the festival for giving our film the recognition! And to all the below winners, congrats!
