12 wins!!!

12 has won a Golden Remi at the Houston Worldfest 2004. The festival (which ran simultaneously with the RiverRun International Festival in North
Carolina) is world famous for discovering such talents as George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. We would like to thank Kathleen Haney, J Hunter Todd and the staff at Houston Worldfest Headquarters.

12 has won the Best of Fest Award at the Syracuse International Video and Film Festival. We ventured to the upstate New York Oasis of Syracuse last weekend. 12 was screened at the EVERSON MUSEUM OF ART. This place was beautiful. I felt chills as I walked up and saw that the festival was projecting animation shorts on the outside wall of the museum(GO! GO! O Great Guerilla Drive In Spirit!) The theater was amazing and had excellent acoustics. The showing went flawless. They really did a great job but I have to tell you that the after show Q&A with Lawrence Bridges was the best part. This is one of the most intelligent, articulate and aware audiences I have ever seen. The Syracuse Film Community is well versed and in depth- nothing gets passed them. The range of questions and their deep understanding of the material was stunning and inspirational. This audiences enthusiasm was refreshing. We would like to thank Owen Shapiro, Christine Fawcett and the entire staff for a wonderful experience.

12 will be screening at the Filmstock International Film Festival in London on June 13th- DRIVE IN STYLE. For info- check out www.filmstock.co.uk
