The Thicket Makes It into more film fests!

Its been just around six months since The Thicket aired at its first film festival (Mysticon Short Film Fest) and took home its first award (best short horror film,) Since then it has played at numerous other film fests and taken home another best horror short award (ConCarolinas Independent film fest.) It has played on the east coast and the west coast of the US and I know Mariah and myself couldn't be more proud of how well the short has been received! And we are not stopping there! It has been accepted to lots more film festivals (Some I am not even allowed to announce yet.) but three I am allowed to talk about are;

InterventionCon 7's Film Fest (Rockville, Md. Sept. 16-18)

The short will be playing September 16th,  Friday afternoon at 3:30pm in the video room at the convention. Please check it out if you are attending InterventionCon in Rockville Maryland! I'll be in attendance for the screening of this one and am really excited to have it playing at this amazing convention that does so much for the creative community! You can find their webpage here

CineScream 2016 (Greensboro, NC Oct. 16th, 7:00pm)

CineScream 2016 is an evening of horror films being plays at Geeksboro, Greensboro, NC's best geek coffee shop. Tickets are $5 and all proceeds go to the Forever is Tomorrow Charity that helps raise awareness toward kidney disease. The Thicket will be one of the 13 films playing that night so if you are local to Greensboro, then come on out and enjoy all the films with us!  Check out the Facebook event for it and come out and watch some great films!

Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival (Cary, NC Nov. 5th)

I am really excited about film fests that have a focus on woman creators! Sick Chick Flicks Film Fest is one of those and is run by a wonderful female director whom I admire, so it was really exciting to be included into this film fest this year! Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival is in Cary NC, on Nov. 5th at the Cary Theater. There are 53 short films playing during the weekend, and The Thicket has even been nominated for an award for "Best NC Short Film" so woot for that too! Check out their Facebook page here for more info on this awesome film fest!

There are two other film fests that the short has been accepted into that I cannot announce just yet, but I will be really excited for the film to play in states it has not yet played in (both of these are in state it has not premiered in!) So keep an eye out for new info on where you can see The Thicket premiere at a film festival near you!
