WE WON… Our first ever entry to a film festival .. at the first ever Romford international Film Festival, in Romford, in – yes – Essex…And we won the Rommy Award for Best Animation: Short. We are very proud. Our winning entry was our episode Talking with Dinosaurs. You can check it out at TheBruvs.com and on our YouTube channel.
We are particularly pleased to have won in Essex. After all, TheBruvs is set in that county. It all seems to fit perfectly. Is that serendipity?
We salute all who made the event happen. The organisers, promoters, sponsors, interns, the young folk at Havering College, the Judges, the high-ups at Premiere Cinemas and Mercury Mall in Romford – and all the filmmakers who submitted their work, from all over the world… China, Ajerbaijan, USA, throughout Europe… A long list.
Three days of screenings and Q and A sessions – in which TheBruvs were proud to take part.
Next year .. the festival could grow to five days. We cannot wait.
It has been a busy time.. Prior to the Romford Film Festival, we had another write up in The Sunday Times Culture magazine.. being picked out as Best On Demand TV for our films on UKTVplay – the Dave channel catch-up service.
Before all that, we appeared on the Nikki Bedi show on BBC Radio London to talk TheBruvs and also to big up the Romford Film Festival. What larks. It was a fun interview – and Ms Bedi made it all so easy and enjoyable. Thanks to her and her producer.
Now we have to ground ourselves again – and get on with the work in hand… A new episode, stuff for Halloween…then stuff for Christmas. Yes, Christmas. Not that long now.
Our first “present” is our Rommy Award. We are thrilled to have it. Thanks to all of you for all the continued support. Please keep spreading the word. You can tell people we are a film festival winner, now. All the more reason for newcomers to get into TheBruvs and try out our little funny films and other funny stuff at TheBruvs.com – and on our facebook, twitter, tumblr, youtube channel and insta
More from us soon. Thank you all… Not many!
