We’re very happy to learn that IMPRINT has been selected to and made it into the Semi-Finals of the Stockholm Short Festival. This makes it a second selection in Sweden. Not bad, considering other projects were ignored for a few years by the Scandinavian region. Not too shabby at all.
We also have some other good news, in that the builders appear to be finally near to done / if not already done. The builders have been creating noise pollution, and vibrations from construction and blasting for nearly 18 months, so soon we can finally record sound again and also shoot in the local area, without their equipment and safety barriers ruining the view. Nice.
Also, for one of the other festivals that IMPRINT is in competition – the BE AFRAID HORROR FEST in Gorizia Italy – Please find the complete program here. And the festival teaser here. – it looks like an excellent line-up.
October was a busy month, but sadly not in the way we wanted. There was supposed to be a live event for Halloween here in Sweden and then that sadly didn’t happen. What was annoying is that there was an event to go to in the US on the same day and we opted for the local event, because it would have been the first Swedish screening – and then by the time we found out the local event wasn’t happening it was too late to go to the one in the US… doh!
However, other than watching bucketloads of horror films for Shocktober / 31DaysofHalloween – there has been some good news.
MR CLEAN is having a busy time of it with online screenings. The short horror film was part of the FIXION Fest Halloween special /especial de terror: https://www.fixionfest.com/noticias/especial-de-terror-halloween-2021/ where it was being screened for free. But sadly that short run / possibility to see the short is now over. However, MR CLEAN is also going to be screened on the FILMIN LATINO platform, which is run by the Ministry of Culture of Mexico, and will be visible from November 17 to 21, 2021 (to anyone using a VPN to get around the geoblocking – you’ll need to appear to be visiting and watching from within Mexico).
