Montreal Student Film Festival

Winning Awards is Fun

What more could a filmmaker want them to have recognition for the work you do? Well, possibly a million dollars, some new lenses and a RED camera, but that's beside the point. This week, I got the chance to live a little moment of glory, and I am forever grateful. My short film "Dreaming in Colour" was not only showcased at this year's 43rd Annual World Film Festival in Montreal, but it won the award for Best Experimental Film in the Student Film Festival. Words cannot express my excitement when I got this news! And having the chance to attend the press conference with the judges and other students was wonderful. Meeting so many great filmmakers in the making certainly re-lit my passion for film. That script that's been sitting on desktop for years might just get a second chance. Seems I now have the confidence to pull it off! So thank you to everyone who inspired this film, and hopefully this is only the beginning of my filmmaking career. You can watch "Dreaming in Colour" right here.
