Beat Around the Bush selected by Maremetraggio Shorts International Film Festival

The 18th Annual Shorts International Festival is a festival that only screens films that have previously won awards, and I’m happy to announce that BEAT AROUND THE BUSH has been officially selected. The festival runs July 1st-8th in Trieste, Italy and having been there myself once (whilst hitchhiking across Europe), I would love to go again!

For a list of selected films visit their website.

This will be the second film that I have directed that has played here. My short TROLLS, screened in 2011.

Young & Reckless is the 2017 Pilot Light TV Fest Best International Web Series Winner

“On Saturday 6th May at MCR Central Library as part of Pilot Light TV Festival Season 2 we held our very first awards ceremony for our TV Pilots and Web Series content that were in competition, and what a competition it was! The quality of the content submitted to us for this Season was incredibly high and came in from all corners of the globe. It was very hard for our programming team to narrow the selection down to our lineup, let alone judge our very first awards. That being said we feel all of our winners (and nominees) should be proud of themselves and we cannot wait to see where their projects head next.”

The nominees for International webseries included: Self-Help Junkie (USA), Hani’s Barber Shop (IL), The Play of My Life (AR), Trudy Cheesecake in Miracle World (FR), Young & Reckless (CAN), Brewstars (CAN), Tinder is The Night (USA), Zyara (LB), Out With Dad (CAN) by my new best friend Jason Leaver from Hollyweb Festival!

Young & Reckless is headed for some Sunshine in Florida!

It’s with great pleasure that I announce that YOUNG & RECKLESS – the digital series I directed and produced about a 28-year-old dude whose arch nemesis is a 13-year-old girl – is headed to St. Petersburg, Florida for the 12th annual Sunscreen Film Festival!

The Sunscreen Film Festival has grown from its first festival in a local art gallery with 600 attendees in 2006. Now it is an internationally recognized event with an annual attendance of over 10,000 in St. Petersburg, FL and Los Angeles, CA. In 2013 the festival expanded to Los Angeles and now holds the Florida version in the spring and the Los Angeles version in the fall each year.

Find out more about the festival – including Dylan McDermott’s presence – at sunscreenfilmfestival.com
