Big congrats this week to several SXSW 2006 premieres that spent their weekend winning awards at other festivals:
– Gregg Kavet and Andy Robin’s narrative feature, Live Free or Die, won the award for “Best New American Film” at the Seattle International Film Festival. (The film is still seeking distribution)
– Billy Kent’s feature, The Oh in Ohio, won the audience award at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. (The film hits theaters nationwide in July)
– Christopher Leone’s hilarious narrative short, K-7, won the Jury Award for best short at the CineVegas Film Festival. (Leone is off working on some big features in development)
Again, congrats to all the SXSW 2006 alumni!
