On the back of the fantastic festival selection news from Portland, we’ve also heard that ‘Snug‘ has received additional cinematic props from the FEEDBACK Female Film Festival (FFFF)!
Held six times a year and shuttling screenings between Los Angeles and Toronto, the festival aims to showcase the very best in female filmmaking and screenwriting talent. Since both of us at Rich Teasers were ‘cup-tied’ by our additional Y chromosomes, our success in this instance is due entirely to the collective double-X chromosome efforts of director Louise Galizia, producer Rosie Wells, DOP Caroline Bridges, costume designer Rachel Pearce and makeup designer Niki Henry who didn’t need to be comfortably-trousered cricket-loving chaps in their 40s to totally get what we were driving at on paper.
Comfortable trousers and knowledge of Test batting averages notwithstanding, we’re extremely proud of the recognition ‘Snug‘ has received from the FFFF and pleased for the fabulous Fs whose hard work got us in front of the selectors in the first place.
FEEDBACK Female Film Festival
2018 certainly is rifling along at a fair old canter, even if ‘rifling’ suggests a pace of movement well beyond the limits of your average, workaday race-winning thoroughbred…
One half-shot film awaiting its hind quarters; two microshorts shooting with a third in the mix; a cracking comedy with a stonking cast scheduled for March; drone flying in the countryside; falling over stuff in the woods… the early news suggested the year might yet decide to lend us one of its spare keys to the opportunity box.
Then, an email:
“Congratulations! Your film is an official selection…”
1000+ film submissions. 52 different judges. Long enough odds to expect to be lapping from the dog bowl of disappointment come notification time, so it’s doubly lovely with cream and marshmallows to see the faith we have in our writing reciprocated by the gatekeepers to these fantastic events. It’s also a timely reminder to us that the faith we had in all the talented collaborators who helped make ‘Snug‘ a prize pick for such an internationally respected film festival was very well placed.
The Portland Comedy Film Festival takes place in Portland, Oregon between 21-24 March, 2018. We’re bloody well in it and couldn’t be happier!
