Triple wins for Exquisite Corpse Project screenings in Los Angeles
Tuesday, June 12th, 2012
Director Ben Popik, of Island films here in San Pedro, is fresh off the heels of three huge accomplishments at film festivals and screenings of his film ‘The Exquisite Corpse Project’. The motion picture kicked off its Film Festival run at the Dances with Films Festival is Los Angeles, California USA and nabbed the Audience Choice Award making it one for one on its debut. Just days later the film snatched up another big win when it took Best Documentary at LA’s New Wave Festival. Ben also received Best Director at the LA New Wave Festival making it three wins in the two film festival race! Imagine that… three awards in two screenings… not bad for your first feature length film! Ben says that they are now working on doing a national tour throughout the US in the next few months as well as having the film available online for viewing.
When speaking with The San Pedro Sun Ben offered his gratitude to his local fans by saying, “I’d like to thank the San Pedro community for the incredible support they’ve shown us and our movie over the past few months, and we can’t wait to show it to everyone at the Belize International Film Festival in July! We feel extremely fortunate to live in such a supportive community.”
So be on the lookout for ‘The Exquisite Corpse Project’ showing at the Belize Film Festival, July 13th – 17th.
Congrats to Ben Popik on the great success of his film so far.
The Exquisite Corpse Awards are:
Audience Choice Award – Dances With Films
Best Documentary – LA New Wave Film Festival
