Plymouth Independant Film Festival

PURGATORY HOUSE won "Best Film" at the Plymouth Independent Film Festival!!! This brings our grand total to 8 awards and 14 festivals! Other well known movies screening alongside us at the festival included HOTEL RWANDA, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES' and THE SEA INSIDE. Festival Director Lisa Mattei did a fantastic job, and we had a record amount of press coverage! I also got to meet legendary animator Bill Plympton who won "Best Short" for his Academy Award nominated film "Guard Dog". And even though our hotel was on the "most haunted" street in Plymouth Massachusetts, we have no ghostly experiences to report.

A film festival banner hangs over the streets.
