Maikaru took home the award for Best Documentary Short at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival. SIFF is one of only 34 film festivals in the world where, if you win a juried prize for short films, your work is considered to be Oscar eligible.
Maikaru, Writer & Director Amanda Harryman, Co-Producer Luke Ware, and I had a blast at the Golden Space Needle Awards Brunch on Sunday 6/8. There we picked up our very stylish award and had a lot of fun taking a selfie with it in front of the repeatable.
After the awards we had a production meeting on top of the needle overlooking our city. Notice how I am trying to play it cool since I am a local and not looking at the gorgeous view of my city.
Maikaru, my latest producing and editing effort, will be making its US premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on May 23rd. I will be attending the screening as well as several crew members and Maikaru himself.
Maikaru made its international debut at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival on the 1st of May. There the film won the award for Best Director and was the runner up for Best Film as a part of the 2014 International Documentary Challenge competition.
So it’s a funny story…
A Dose for Dominic editors George Watt, Amanda Harryman, and I went to a workshop at the Northwest Film Forum where the Local Sightings film festival is held every fall. Dominic played there during the festival last year. I ran into the old Programing Director, Adman Sekuler, who was in the class with us, but left his official capacity at the Film Form shortly after the festival last fall. He was “Hey, Ruth, did my intern ever get in touch with you about how your film won the Audience Award at Local Sightings?” And I was like, “NOOOooo!” So, in short, Dominic won another award…. 5 months ago.
We’ll take it.
Happy to announce that my short film A Dose for Dominic will be screening on Monday September 30th at the Northwest Film Forum as a part of the Local Sightings Film Festival & it has been shortlisted for an award!
