The Coin Takes Silverware From The Tavern

brightside_tavern_film_fest_logo_310x260Congratulations to Fabien Martorell and everyone involved in making his short film The Coin.

After yesterday’s screening at the The Brightside Tavern Film Festival the film was the recipient of the award for Best Concept.

Proof, if further proof were needed, that putting Kathryn in a movie is always a good concept! :-)

The Coin was also nominated in categories covering best short and best directing in a drama, and best cinematography.

That brings the silverware collection up to six for the Kathryn and Christopher Lloyd-starring 9 minute drama about the young son of a stressed mother meeting a homeless man.

The Coin @ Brightside Tavern On Sunday

brightside_tavern_film_fest_logo_310x260Another quick reminder of a screening of a Kathryn-starring film in the next few days.

It’s a busy weekend upcoming for The Coin.  After the Saturday showing at the HollyShorts event it gets an outing at The Brightside Tavern Film Festival on Sunday (16th August).

Starting at 5:05pm the screening at the Jersey City venue includes seven other short films.  The only thing the selection appear to have in common is that they are all being showing in the group.

A bit of interest is the fact that Fabien Martorell’s movie has been nominated for awards in four categories.  The awards show is due to take place after the final session, which just happens to be the one that involves The Coin.  Fingers crossed.

All the information is available on the BTFF website.

The ‘noms’ are the four nominations that the short film The Coin has received at the BTFF event due to take place in mid-August in Jersey City.  The categories are:

  • Best Short Film – Drama
  • Best Director – Drama
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Concept

As well as the great news the film is up for more awards we now have more details on the screening itself, after first bringing you news of the event a couple of weeks ago.

Writer/producer/director Fabien Martorell’s 9 minute long movie starring Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) and Kathryn will be shown on the 16th of August, a Sunday, as part of a group of films starting at 5:05pm.  The screening is described as ‘Downstairs 4’, presumably because it is the fourth taking place in a basement area.
