In a most surprising turn of events, MR CLEAN has won Best Horror at the Swedish International Film Festival (SIFF) I don’t mean it’s surprising because it’s not good, because it is a good little short – but because it had been rejected by a Danish fest the same week, just like the other Scandinavian fests to not put it through to official selection. But we had already been blessed with a win for COMFORT HIM, so to pick up a second award from the same festival was a doubly great honour. Really can’t wait to attend the special live screening event in October.
This means that MR CLEAN has picked up it’s 12th award. Thank you so much to everyone that took a chance on the film, and especially to SIFF for breaking the curse of being ignored by other Scandinavian region film festivals.
We’re very happy to learn that MR CLEAN won the award for Best Horror Film at the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia. This is great news and means that the project has now picked up 10 awards. It also means that MR CLEAN will get to be screened to a live audience and online, due to Covid restrictions, in Indonesia. Awesome!
The event is from 28th to 30th August, from 1pm – 3pm – in Indonesia and online via this link – https://fb.me/e/FWZIgWCC
It comes, a few days after the two nominations it picked up two nominations at the SEVERED LIMBS FILM FESTIVAL 6: THROW ANOTHER HEAD ON THE BARBIE!. MR CLEAN was nominated for ‘Best Villain’ – so congrats to Darwin Reina for his portrayal of MR CLEAN – and ‘Best kill / Goriest short’. And it was a lot of fun attending the online festival and enjoying the variety of horror shorts.
IMPRINT – our unproduced dark horror short script picked up its 11th award – for Best Short Horror Script (under 30 pages) – at the Horror Film Awards. That’s huge news! We’re very happy that the script continues to pick up some awards, despite some major A-list festival rejections.
And despite the films being snubbed by every Scandinavian region festival to date, the 60 second version of COMFORT HIM has been officially selected to the Swedish International Film Festival (SIFF). Double cool! This means that the curse of being ignored by Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish and Estonian fests to date has officially ended. It doesn’t mean they won’t reject again. But it’s huge. Also, as this fest has a live screening planned in October for the winners, you can bet your butt that we’d love to get a chance to be invited to screen COMFORT HIM in front of a live festival audience – which would technically be the Swedish premiere. So fingers cross we win.
We’ve just learned that IMPRINT has picked up its 9th award – from the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia! Wow! We really thought, as the competition was tough, that we would not win. But we’re so very grateful and happy to do so.
This is great news – many thanks.

It’s been a good week and I’m very happy to share that IMPRINT has won it’s 8th award and been selected to and has placed in its 16th festival, and MAGIC IS MURDER, has been selected to its second festival.
IMPRINT picked up an award for Best unproduced script at the Florida Shorts fest. It has also now been selected and is in the finals of the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia, where there is stiff competition, but the judging won’t conclude until the end of July.
The feature comedy horror script for MAGIC IS MURDER has been selected to it’s second film festival at Cult movies International Film Festival. There is some exciting news around casting (and hopefully some other news) which we hope to be able to share soon. But I’m very happy that this script that I co-wrote with Simon O’Kill is also doing well in its’ festival run.
