This week, the ReelHeART International Film Festival, Toronto, awarded the Best Film Award in the ReelTube category to Pat Kelman’s Filmaka shorts FRANCIS, THE LETTER GAME and ELEPHANT BOY. Reel Tube is a new category added to this year’s lineup, to honor films specifically made for the internet. Pat is a Festival favorite, having won Best Feature Film Award in 2005 for ENCOUNTERS. Congratulations on your continued success, Pat!
This just in from Filmaka 08/09 Feature Film Competition Finalist Pat Kelman:
“Hi gang. Just to let you know of some continued success of my Filmaka films. The 5th ReelHeART International Film Festival (RHIFF), Toronto will launch on Monday June 22nd with a programme of films that includes three shorts by Pat Kelman created for Filmaka. The programme includes FRANCIS (Truth or Dare Special Jury Prize winner), THE LETTER GAME (Truth or Dare Entry Level Winner) and ELEPHANT BOY (On the Road Entry Level Winner). Being selected for RHIFF is like a homecoming for the film maker, as his first feature, ENCOUNTERS, won the Best Feature Film prize in the Festival’s inagural year and has been shown twice since under the Festival’s banner. FRANCIS and THE LETTER GAME are included in the Festival’s new “ReelTube” category, intended for films specifically created for the internet. ELEPHANT BOY has the honour of being selected for the Festival’s Short Film Competition. Kind regards, Pat”
