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!
