Recently, Playing Through was accepted into the NSI Online Short Film Festival and we just got word that our film was given an honorable mention for the A&E Short Filmmakers Award!
I’d like to congratulate ‘Remote‘ directed by Marc Roussel for winning the award and I’d also like to congratulate Hugh John Murray for getting an honorable mention as well for his film ‘Desiderata‘. It was the first time there were two honorable mentions.
The NSI Online Short Film Festival is a fantastic collection of Canadian films and we were thrilled to be a part of it. Here are some of the nice things the jury said about Playing Through.
“Solid storytelling by the filmmaker and great chemistry between the actors combined to make a touching and heartfelt film.” Juan Riedinger
“This simple golf afternoon is intelligently layered with complex emotion. I respected its patience and its humble approach in unraveling private anxieties within one simple setting. All elements were nicely in sync in this story – photography, editing, performance, direction, and script. It is a lovely character piece about friendship that is respectful of its medium.” Anneli Ekborn
“This unabashedly sweet and unique portrayal of male relationships captures a moment of reflection on what matters most.” Danis Goulet
Special Thanks to NSI Canada for their support.
