After a hectic, but entertaining ten months, we have been thrilled to find Drone Strike so popular on the short film circuit. Our twelfth festival laurel has now arrived from Henley Fringe Festival where Drone Strike will screen in late July.
Looking back, one of the greatest achievements for Drone Strike in 2014 was winning the Best Short award, as voted by the jury at the Beverly Hills Film Festival. To be first in any manner is a fantastic feeling, but to be recognised by a jury made up of distinguished Hollywood professionals was an accolade that felt very special.
Another unexpected delight came from an invitation to screen the film to a private audience as part of a promotional event the San Diego Film festival organised ahead of their festival in September. San Diego is a large military city in the US and the lengthy 25 minute Q & A session after the film proved to be challenging and very enjoyable with an enthusiastic audience.
We are still in festival mode, and are finding ourselves being invited to many more great festivals and events. Since our last update Drone Strike has also screened at the Omaha Film Festival 2014, the Cleveland International Film Festival and Cinema Jove in Valencia. Coming up in July, we represent England in the One Country One Film International Film Festival in France on the 25th of July, and screen at the aforementioned Henley Fringe & Film Festival on July 27th.
We look forward to updating you again very soon.
