2014 Film and Screenplay Winners Announced

So after much deliberation and scrambling to watch and read all of our submissions for TrindieFest 2014, we have wrapped up our list of finalists.

 

We have 17 Feature Film Winners, 4 Calling Card Winners and 9 Short Film Winners. Our plan, as in the past, is to screen all 30 of these films in the 3 days of our festival. No easy task! As an added bonus, Dawn of the Crescent Moon will also show for the first time in Trinidad sometime during the festival. Bring your friends and family to enjoy a wide spectrum of films for this fun-filled weekend. Our selection of films range from Comedy to Drama, and Thrillers to Animated and Live Action Shorts. And for the first time...Music Videos. Pack up the family and join us this September 18-21.

 

We have not forgotten our screenplay winners either...

 

There have been 15 screenplays selected to win awards and we hope to soon see them in film. 

 

Originating in 2013, we filmed and screened an excerpt from each of the top screenplays to give our winners some added recognition during the festival. We have plans to continue this again this year with the help of the local theater and film students at Trinidad State Junior College. 

Congratulations to all our winners. We look forward to meeting you.

 

Check back to see when your films will be screening.

2 GOLD AWARDS AT WORLDFEST HOUSTON FOR DAWN OF THE CRESCENT MOON!

The nice thing about running a festival is that you get to toot your own horn. Last Saturday night (April 12th) Dawn of the Crescent Moon took home 2 Gold Remi  Awards at WorldFest Houston for Best Screenplay and Best Feature Thriller.

 

We are still planning on showcasing our film this year at TrindieFest and are having the Writer/Director (me), the Writer/Producer, Kevin Coleman, and the Director of Photography, David Craig, speak on the art of making high quality film on a micro-budget. You may even get to meet some of the cast as well!
