With more than 44,000 ratings on Netflix (at the time of this post) with an average of 4 stars we are extremely thankful for the overwhelmingly positive response of our awesome fans and friends of The Lamp. Which means it’s time for us to put our film up against some other great films in a couple of festivals and see if it can come out with more awards than black eyes
The first stop for our baby was the Kingdomwood Film Festival in Georgia last year where The Lamp took Best Drama and now we’re proud to say that it is an official selection of the Trail Dance Film Festival in Oklahoma and is nominated in 3 different categories. Those categories are:
• Best Drama
• Best Actor/Actress – Cameron ten Napel and Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr
• Best Director
We’ve got our fingers crossed as we get ready to head to the festival on January 27th with the awards show on January 28th. Trail Dance is one of our favorite film festivals and we have to admit we covet the top notch Golden Drover awards that they give out. It’s a beautiful statue and is a testament to the awesome job that Anthony Foreman and the crew at Trail Dance do every year.
If you want to come out to Trail Dance head on over to their site here: Trail Dance Site and check out the nomination list, the screening schedule, and then get yourself a pass to see the movies. The awards show is free to the public and starts at 9pm on Saturday night January 28th, we would love to see you there!
After Trail Dance we have entered The Lamp into the AMC Theaters Kansas City Film Fest and we’ve got our fingers crossed to become an official selection. As soon as we know more on that front we’ll let you know on our Facebook page here: The Lamp on Facebook.
So that’s it, our little baby is growing up and we’re excited and hopeful it will do well, but not matter what happens the reviews and stories that we have heard from all of you is why we do what we do in the first place. We make great films for great people and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us in what we do. It’s really not possible without you!
