If you are in town, I’d love it if you could come and show your support!

Welcome to the Seasons of Love blog and website. Please continue to check back for more news and screening information.

Here’s all that has happened with my film before I launched this site…

January 25, 2010 – Seasons of Love is accepted to its first film festival!

Seasons of Love will have its San Francisco premiere at the 4th Annual San Francisco Bay International Children’s Film Festival as a part of WonderCon on April 2-4, 2010 (Screening time TBA in March).

January 7, 2010 – Seasons of Love received the 2010 Russell Hexter Filmmaker Grant.

Here’s a little snippet from the award letter.

“They felt that your film was beautifully conceived and executed, with great artistry, style and wit. Additionally, The Hexter Grant is the only grant that takes into consideration each applicants work with fellow classmates and filmmakers, and here, your peers informed the judges of a great generosity with your talent, creativity, energy and time.  This was very much what Russ was about and makes us proud to have you receive this award.”

August 2009 – Seasons of Love screens “unofficially” at the Festival Internazionale del Cinema di Frontiera in Marzamemi, Sicily, Italy.

I attended the festival as a part of a cultural exchange program between NYU, the festival, and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Two NYU graduates and two young filmmakers from Tunisia were invited to participate in a panel discussion to talk about filmmaking in our respective countries and the challenges we face as young filmmakers. As a little treat, they decided to screen my film after the panel. Although the discussion itself was a bit terrifying, I did get some great feedback from the festival director and a few audience members.
