Great News!

Marco DiFelice, the director of “The Ballad of Hugh” texted me at midnight last night to tell me that the film won the award for “Best Canadian Documentary” at the Global Visions Festival in Edmonton this weekend. I woke up my wife to tell her, and after congratulating me she asked “wait, are you sure you didn’t dream that?” Considering that I sometimes talk in my sleep, it was a reasonable question.

It happened at the first festival I didn’t attend (maybe I’m bad luck?), but it’s an honour! It really was one of my favourite things I’ve ever worked on. I haven’t heard all of the details yet, but I know that Marco did attend the festival and participated in a Q&A. Hopefully we can ride this momentum and get some more recognition in Chicago next month!
