San Diego Film Festival

Festival programmer Karl Kozak did an amazing job with this festival. PURGATORY HOUSE screened alongside well-known indies we'd heard lots of buzz about like: DEAR FRANKIE, AROUND THE BEND, PRIMER, THE MACHINIST, and UNKNOWN SOLDIER. The festival took place in the historic Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, and almost all the movies had full audiences! It was fun meeting celebrities like Phyllis Diller, James Russo, Michael Ironside, Melissa Joan Hart, and Rick Schroder. The Actor's Ball and Awards Ceremony was hosted by Extra!'s Michael Corbett, and Celeste won "Best Screenplay" for PURGATORY HOUSE!! It was an engraved silver statue that she was thrilled to receive.
