A couple of weeks ago, I received news that Stonefly, my most recent short documentary film, won the award for "Best Cinematography" while screening at DOC NYC. The film was produced in under 120 hours for the Fusion Project Earth Doc Challenge through the Audience Awards. To read what the Audience Awards had to say about the award win, check out their article on the top three films published November 30:
Stonefly will screen as a selected short in the 2017 Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capitol as well as the 2017 International Wildlife Film Festival here in Missoula, Montana. Following the festival circuit, the film will be used by the Fusion Network to create content for the public and for its streaming services.
Next May, 2017, the Audience Awards will re-open the top 12 films for viewing and voting in a competition identical to the one Kuwan won a couple of years back. While Stonefly did not win any of the cash prizes presented by the jury, it still has a chance to place in the top three during this Audience Awards competition. Don't worry, I'll bug you every day about it when the time comes!
