    Good Festival, Thank you for the official selection of my screenplay The Purifying Angel".

  • Four years ago when we set out to make “Behind the Name Shakespeare: Power, Lust, Scorn & Scandal,” we had no expectations it would be well-received in the film community. After all, we made it on a fraction of usual documentary budgets and we practically invented a refreshingly new method of presenting a documentary. To date though, we have received 78 top awards validating our hard work. To be awarded for all our long efforts by an award from the Hollywood Hills Film Festival would be truly an honor, but to receive three incredible awards was a stunning affirmation of our efforts. We still can’t believe we won Best Of The Fest and Best Director and Best Documentary. Thank you!

    We are deeply honored that our short film “The McHenry Trial - Don't Judge a Kid by Their Hoodie" was included in your festival. The event is well-organized with great communication. May the festival continue to provide filmmakers a platform that fosters creativity and self expression.
