We’re very happy to learn that the short horror film script IMPRINT has picked up its 13th, 14th and 15th awards! and just before the end of the year too. Nice. A great little winning spurt in December.

We’re very grateful to all of the festival selections, placings and awards that have been given to us this year. Truly. Thank you to all of the festivals that took a chance on each of our projects. We still can’t believe that a total of 37 awards have been awarded to our projects, and that we even finally broke the Scandinavian region curse and placed and won over here too. Nice.

We really hope to be able to share more news in 2022, especially about nudging IMPRINT a little further into production. But please note, the website will be undergoing some changes in the new year. We need to rethink how and what we share news wise, where we share it in order to keep website storage down and to prepare for the next phase of Eibon Films. So don’t be surprised if we start killing off a few posts here and there soon!

12th award and 32nd selection for IMPRINT

It’s been quite an eventful time of late. A lot of it not good – regarding bereavements and sick cats – but I was really chuffed to find out this week that the short horror script for IMPRINT has picked up its 12th award and 32nd official selection.

IMPRINT won the Best Unproduced Script award at the Stockholm Short Film Festival. Details to be confirmed on their website soon. And it has also been selected to Shockfest Film Festival and Lit Scares International Horror Festival.

And as you can see, I’m not displaying all of the selections and placements, as that would clutter the poster up. But it’s done so well to date. I can’t wait to make it and see how the eventual film blows people away.

MR CLEAN picks up an award and IMPRINT is a semi-finalist

This morning, I woke up – after a much appreciated good night of sleep – to the news that our unproduced dark horror short script for IMPRINT has been selected and put through to the semi-finals of the Sell Your Screenplay Six-Figure Screenplay contest. That was a lovely surprise, as I’d actually forgotten about submitting. And that’s 23 selections so far.

You can also read the list of semi-finalists here: Announcement

That was pretty cool. Definitely.

But then… before I even had the chance to announce that, and the fact that it had just been confirmed as an official selection at another fest, we then learned that MR CLEAN had picked up it’s 13th award, for ‘Best Short Film’ at the Red Moon Film Festival. That was most unexpected and very much appreciated.

It’s been a very good week and we’re extremely grateful. Thank you very much.

MR CLEAN wins at SIFF!

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.

MR CLEAN’s 10th award

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.

One thing is clear, that MR CLEAN still has life in it on the festival circuit, although it is time for me to get this film released. So let me figure out a plan and I will share it soon. For now, congrats to the team of MR CLEAN. 👏👏👏 on 10 awards and 26 festival selections.

IMPRINTs 11th award and COMFORT HIM’s fest latest

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.

There’s more news coming… so watch this space.
