A Film By Abigail In Official Selection At 4th DocFilm & Runner-Up At RATMA Festival!
Firstly, I hope everyone reading this had a great bank holiday! I was travelled up North to Keighley representing A FILM BY ABIGAIL at the RATMA International Film Festival. Against some varied & impressive opposition, the film narrowly missed out on winning the Documentary Award to a very good doc about the sport of BMX (USA). As one of only two nominations from the category, A FILM BY ABIGAIL became the official "Runner-Up" in 2nd place.
Now for bigger news...
The film has been accepted into another festival, gaining the accolade of Official Selection at one of the major documentary events of the UK: DOCFILM FESTIVAL! This marks the first festival/event operating solely for the exposure of documentary the film has been selected for. It's going to be a within a rich program of documentary works being screened at venues across Leicester city centre between the 8th & 10th of November (2013). An important function of the 4th edition of the film festival is to instil awareness & promote worthwhile community causes & issues to the wider public. The "Festival Director" is John Coster of CITIZEN'S EYE, a website that reports "by the people" on important stories & events for the Leicester community.
ALSO A FEW NIGHTS AGO there was a double screening of MARS-II & A FILM BY ABIGAIL [Dir. by Paul Vernon] at EAT MY SHORT SHORTS III in High Wycombe. If you couldn't attend, at least check out their truly brilliant poster below & I hope you had a great weekend!
Sorry... ONE final thing! MARS-II is in competition at SNAKE ALLEY FESTIVAL OF FILM (USA) in a week!!! LIKE the fest on Facebook for updates. FOLLOW me on Twitter @PAULEVERNON FOLLOWJohn Coster & Citizen's Eye @CITIZENSEYE
