‘Seasons of Love’ wins BEST ANIMATED FILM

I am so thrilled to announce that Seasons of Love received the award for Best Animated Film at the Visions Film Festival and Conference!

This, by far, was the most fun I’ve had at a festival. I’ve never been surrounded by a group of such genuine and talented filmmakers and film scholars. And to the students at UNCW who hosted the festival, thank  you for making me feel so welcomed!

Congrats to fellow NYU Alumni, Jaclyn Gramigna and Felix Thompson, who also won awards for their films.

Tribeca Cinemas Kids Club

Seasons of Love will screen on June 5, 2010 as a part of the Tribeca Cinemas Kids Club, a new family film series from the Tribeca Film Festival!

It will screen as a part of the “Great Shorts!” program at 10:30am at the Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick Street, NYC). Click here to buy tickets and see what other films are playing.

A little bit more about the “Great Shorts!” program…

“Colorful, funny, sweet and creative–short films are one of the best-kept secrets of the movies. Telling any story in a short time period is hard, and telling a GREAT story in a short time is even harder. Whether it’s puppy love, amazing animation or movie magic at its best, these eclectic kid-friendly short films share amazing stories from around the world.”

I hope to see you there!
