Last Call nominated for "Best Short" at Brightside Tavern Film Festival!

Nominated: Best Short

It's an awesome moment for "Last Call!" We've received our second official selection and our first nomination for "Best Short," thanks to the Brightside Tavern Film Festival.

We're honored to be included in this category alongside some amazing short films, including "The Weekend," (with Danielle Guldin and Taso Mikroulis) directed by Dennis Cahlo and "If Only for a Moment," (with Janel Tanna and Amanda Damron) directed by Larry Rosen (I was also 2nd AD on this film).

"Last Call," was made for the 72-Hour Film Challenge hosted by the Actors Green Room. The film was shot and edited all within 72 hours.

If you're like me then you love discovering new indie films and meeting the creative people behind them. Come out and support us on Sunday, March 5, at Brightside Tavern in Jersey City. "Last Call" screens downstairs in the 11:20am block.

The address is 141 Bright St., Jersey City, NJ 07302. The festival runs from Friday, March 3 - Sunday, March 5, 2017. I'm including the entire festival lineup below. For more info and to buy tickets visit:
