No really, watch it! OK. So we won. Against stiff competition too, 20 films in all. It was a great evening which went on into the warm Bahamian night. This has been a great festival and I have been lucky enough to make lots of new American friends who I plan to look up next time I am in LA and San Francisco. I also met Laurence Fishburne who was extremely articulate, charming and smart. Blimey!
I was really overwhelmed too, by the amount of people who seemed genuinely delighted that our film had won, and it was very humbling as many of them had themselves made great movies and walked away without an award. I was also amazed at how many powerful Industry people were here, and all of them wanted a DVD of the film – good job I had 20 'NTSC screener' DVD’s in my bag! There is even the glimmer of several new opportunities that have arisen from the whole rollercoaster – don’t want to say anything yet, but let’s see how things evolve.
Right, I need to sleep now, and when I wake, it’s back to writing my script!
Onwards and upwards!
