Trip to San Diego

posted in: Festivals | 0

Hey everyone!

Last week, Carl flew to California for a few days to represent the team at the San Diego Film Festival. It was a great opportunity to promote the film, meet new people and even answer some questions from the audience during a Q & A – all in all, a very pleasant first presence outside Montreal. Unfortunately, Le Gouffre didn’t win, but congratulations to The Dam Keeper, which won the award for best animated film!

We have two new festival selections to present this week. First, we are pleased to announce that it will be possible once again to watch the film in Montreal at the SPASM festival this October 24th. You can already come here to get your ticket!

SPASM Festival 2014
Montreal, Canada – October 23-November 1st

Also, the film was selected at the Kino Fest in Romania. This announcement comes a little late since the presentation has already taken place, but we wanted to share it with you anyway.

Kinofest International Digital Film Festival 2014

Have a good October everyone!

New website

posted in: Festivals | 0

Hey everyone!

As you can see, we did a major update to our website, since it was originally meant as a production blog and it didn’t really fit now that the film is over. Our teaser is now in the forefront and all of the information on the film is at direct reach, including the complete list of official selections and the upcoming festivals in the new PRESS page. We hope you’ll like it!

There was a bunch of new selections lately and we’ve even been nominated for Best Short Film for the Animago Award! The final results should be announced on October 14, but in the meantime you can consult the following link to see what other films were nominated :

Here is a list of the new festivals that will be screening Le Gouffre in the upcoming months!

Starz Denver Film Festival
Denver, USA – November 12-23

Aesthetica Short Film Festival
York, UK – November 6-9

SITGES Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya
Sitges, Spain – October 3-12

Catalina Film Festival

Up next : find a way to screen our film in a Los Angeles theatre for three consecutive days before September 30th, so the film can become eligible for the Oscars. Indeed, it’s now the only way we have left since we didn’t get the chance to win a first prize in a major festival until now.

We’ll keep you updated!
