AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER!!
We are pleased to announce that ABDUCTION has won the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival Audience Award for Best Documentary. What a surprise and honor! We were really happy when they announced it because the audience award is totally democratic and voted on by the viewers not just a panel of judges. The winners were announced at a ceremony at Club Suede in Park City on January 27th. The festival is now over but it was a fantastic experience for us. We're now trying to decide which agents and distributors are going to suit our film best. We've had a lot of interest but we need someone who's going to give it the kind of care that it needs so that people all over the US can hear the story of Megumi. Our friend Todd Rohal, director of THE GUATEMALAN HANDSHAKE, won a Special Jury Prize as well last night which was a wonderful bonus for all of us since Todd is from the DC-area and we'd been supporting his crew all along. Congrats to him and his peeps!
