Toronto International Film and Video Awards

Scrap Metal is nominated as one of four finalist for an award in the children's category for the 2nd annual Toronto International Film and Video Awards
The festival organisers seem to have a pretty cool arsenal of firearms, so make sure you all check out this festival or your car could be next!
They've started an indiegogo campaign if you can't go but would still like to support.

I can't find information on the website about the time and place, but I am assuming that TIFVA is being held on October 12-14, 2012


Scrap Metal won for Best Children's Film!

Toronto International Student Animation Festival 2011

Just found out that Scrap Metal was featured in the 5th Annual Toronto International Student Animation Festival
Sheridan must have submitted my film, because I did not and I only found out now when I googled by film name. Scrap Metal showed in the stop-motion category of the post-secondary section on Friday, November 4th 2011. It was shown at the NFB in Toronto too, which is really awesome! Wish I knew about it when it showed...

New Orleans Horror Film Festival 2012

Scrap Metal has been accepted to the Sci-Fi Shorts category for the 2nd annual New Orleans Horror Film Festival.
The Festival takes place October 25th - 28th
The Inn on Bourbon, 541 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130
The Schedule has yet to be released. This looks like a fun and cool festival though. I hope my film plays okay, it will be surrounded by intense horror flicks whereas Scrap Metal is intended as a family accessible Sci-Fi monster flick; hopefully the audience will be open to that and/or at least enjoy the visuals.
At the very least, it has an awesome laurel to put on my site!
