Film Festivals

More Awards and More Festivals!

We’re happy to report that PIONEER is staying strong out on the festival circuit.  We recently won our first European film fest at Festival Internacional de Cortos FIB in Spain. We were awarded First Prize by the jury and this is what they had to say about it:

“For the sobriety and restraint it shows in talking about brotherly love, about how to find one’s path in life and about how being able to imagine and recount can make us stop time.”

Just last week we were awarded the Jury Prize for Best Narrative Film at Nevada City Film Festival.

It’s all very exciting.

Here’s some more screenings we have coming up (check links for showtimes):

Sidewalk Film Festival (Birmingham, AL) August 26-28

DC Shorts Fest (Washington, DC) September 8-10

Vladivostok International Film Festival (Vladivostok, Russia) September 10-16
