On March 9th 2009 “happiending” was awarded the Jury Commendation for Live Action Short Film at the 2009 Durango Independent Film Festival (DIFF).
This was happiending’s first festival appearance and I am extremely happy to know the film was noted among an exciting and high quality program, showcasing films from around the world. The film was met with an extremely positive reaction by the audience and screened to a full house on both occasions.
We would all like to thank the festival and the city of Durango for this distinguished honor.
“…I promise to keep my work real and personal and to do my best to live up to the acknowledgement I have received here tonight.” These were my words when I accepted the award.
