According to a post by Fabien Martorell on the Facebook page for the short film The Coin, it has been selected for the Palm Springs International ShortFest for 2013. Fabien should know more than most as he is the director and co-writer of the short film. Congratulations to all involved in that achievement.
The festival runs for a week in the latter half of June and will be showing more than 300 short films from all over the world. Nothing has been announced officially by the festival organisers as the time of writing. We will certainly let you know when that changes.
The Coin is a 9 minute long film starring Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) and Kathryn. Kathryn plays the stressed-out mother of a young boy who meets a homeless man (Lloyd).
See previous posts on KM UK for more info on the project. The ShortFest and the International Film Festival share a website which can be seen here.
Despite the disruption to the US East coast caused by Hurricane Sandy recently this past weekend’s Brownfish Short Film Festival in New York City went ahead largely as planned. The event ended with an awards gala (sounds grand but in reality probably just a small gathering in a bar somewhere) where the winners in seven film categories were announced.
Sadly, the short film Sunday’s Mother, starring Kathryn as the titular parent, was beaten to the Best Drama award by Tammaso Paino’s Chrome. Obviously we demand a recount! However, according to the Brownfish website Tammaso is from the UK so we can’t be too hard on him
Congratulations to all the winners.
The recent situation with Hurricane Sandy causing a massive amount of destruction along East Coast of the United States has been watched very closely from around the world. Our thoughts are with everyone caught-up in it.
This coming Sunday (4th November 2012) was due to see the short film Sunday’s Mother starring Kathryn screened at the Brownfish Short Film Festival NYC 2012. With the significant disruption in New York it is not clear at this time if the event will happen at all. At present the organisers are considering their options, looking into alternative venues etc. It would certainly be understandable if the festival was postponed or called off completely. KM UK is keeping an eye on developments.
If you are considering attending the festival check the event’s Facebook page for the latest news. Please don’t try and travel to the New York unless it is safe to do so.
Along with 5 other films Sunday’s Mother will be up for the Best Drama award at this New York based festival. There there will be 22 films in total shown across the three day event. For more details see the Brownfish.com website.
If the festival does go ahead and you are able to attend the screening of Sunday’s Mother please do let us know what you think of Kathryn’s performance and the film in general. It would be great to hear some feedback from attendees.
Update (3rd November): With power restored in the relevant part of New York the festival is going ahead as originally planned. This means that Sunday’s Mother will be screened on Sunday (4th November) at the Cinema Village22 East 12th Street, NYC, at 4:30pm local time.
More Sunday’s Mother festival news.
The short film Sunday’s Mother, which stars Kathryn as the mother of the lead character Sunday, has been accepted, appropriately, into the Brownfish Short Film Festival NYC 2012.
Taking place between the 2nd and 4th of November in New York, the festival is the work of the Brownfish production company. It was created to help filmmakers showcase their work.
The 15 minute long Sunday’s Mother will be competing for Best Drama with five other films. There are five more categories and 22 films in total. Congratulations and good luck to Sunday’s Mother.

Thanks to the Sunday’s Mother production team for letting us know about this.
Back in May the short drama film Sunday’s Mother starring Kathryn, Chase Ellison, Riley Smith and Brian Norris received it’s première at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
Tomorrow (Friday, 7th September 2012) and Saturday sees the 15 minute short film Sunday’s Mother get another festival screening, this time at the Phenom Film Fest, based in Bossier City, Louisiana.
Like the Newport Beach event, Sunday’s Mother will be shown in a themed block of seven “Drama Short Films”. The latest version of the Phenom schedule shows that there have been some changes to the line up and timings. Now totalling 1.5 hours, instead of over 2, the block gets its first airing at the East Bank Theatre at a new time of 13:30, moved back by 15 minutes. Saturday’s repeat showing at the Marriot Courtyard remains at 17:50.
If you are in the Bossier City area in the coming days and get a chance to see Sunday’s Mother then please tell us about your experience.
You can find more information on the event’s website HERE.
Sunday’s Mother is a short film about a boy (Sunday) suffering at the hands of a bully. Kathryn plays Gillian, the boy’s mother. It was filmed last year after raising funds via the Kickstarter website. KM UK is proud to have been involved in the fund raising effort and supporting this film.
We hope to bring you more news about Sunday’s Mother very soon.
