If you're interested or happen to be living in Estonia... A FILM BY ABIGAIL (2011) is scheduled for the Thursday 15th of November 18:00 slot ("STUDENT FILM COMPETITION: THIRD PROGRAMME") at the BFM New Cinema, Tallinn. On inspection, there are only fourteen other films filling the student category, making the competition tight. In addition, A FILM BY ABIGAIL (2011) has been requested to be included in the leaving package that's given to festival representatives & filmmakers visiting the SLEEPWALKERS event, to show examples & highlights of the films they've seen.
The other categories at SLEEPWALKERS, from the 12th - 15th November, featured alongside the student films are INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM, BALTIC SEA, ESTONIAN FILMS & the TEL AVIV UNIVERSITY RETROSPECTIVE.

'A FILM BY ABIGAIL' (2011) IN COMPETITION AT SLEEPWALKERS FILM FESTIVAL
I am very happy to announce that today I have been informed A FILM BY ABIGAIL (2011) has been selected to be screened at the international SLEEPWALKERS STUDENT & SHORT FILM FESTIVAL. This will be the short film's international premiere and in addition it will be in competition for the Grand Prix prize of the event.
According to the competition programme, the event "...takes the cream of short films from the best and most renowned film schools from all corners of the globe." Alongside A FILM BY ABIGAIL (2011) the festival plays host to films from countries such as Denmark, Germany, Latvia, Finland, Lithuania, Poland, Russia & Sweden competing in various categories. The festival is being held in Tallinn, Estonia from 12th - 15th of November; it is the only festival of it's type in the country, dedicated to internationals shorts. This is very exciting news for what it is but also that it may to help it get accepted by other festivals around the world too. Until Nov 5th, when the official programme is published online, I have no idea how many films have been selected or how many documentaries are among them - there is a Best Documentary award (found from researching other years of the event), so fingers crossed that the film charms the audience and stands up to the other work in it's category to be a contender for that.
A FILM BY ABIGAIL (2011) is a short documentary film about a young girl creating and explaining a story for a film she hopes to make.To learn more about A FILM BY ABIGAIL (2011), a profile page is on my site HERE
