Connie continues to thrive on the festival scene, with more award wins and nominations under her tiny little felt belt (ooer!).
Connie has won an Honourable Mention Award at The International Horror Hotel 2017, and screens at the event in June in Ohio, US. Connie has had several screenings in Ohio and has either been nominated for an award or won one at each of those festivals. Big love to Ohio!
Back on home soil, Connie also took the Unrestricted View Film Festival in London by storm at the end of April, garnering nominations for Best Short, Best Director and Best Actress!
Our next UK screening is currently set for August bank holiday weekend in a city close to our director’s heart – beautiful Manchester – where she lived for six years. Yes, Connie will have her Northern UK Premiere at the incredible Starburst International Film Festival.
Before she’s let loose on Manchester, Connie will be making her way to Berlin for her German Premiere next month at Final Girls Berlin Film Festival! Connie will no doubt chomp down on a bit of bratwurst before entertaining her fans. What a well travelled puppet she’s going to be!
Her jet-setting doesn’t stop there, oh no! Connie has been selected as part of the prestigious Etheria World Tour 2017/18 and will screen internationally at Etheria events throughout 2017/18 at universities, art galleries, conventions, museums, independent cinemas, year-round travelling horror conventions, partner festivals, pop-up Etheria screenings, official Etheria Women in Horror Month events, and horror/sci-fi/comic conventions. Now that is BIG news – she might be coming to a town near you soon! We can hear you all running away screaming “potty mouth.”
And finally, we’re very proud that Connie is screening TONIGHT (26/05) at the Seattle International Film Festival! Being selected for an OSCAR qualifying festival is something that just couldn’t have been predicted for a small film about a very sweary, domineering puppet showgirl. It’s beyond our dreams and expectations. Connie already has Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender in her sights, though she’d eat them alive. So, if you’re anywhere close to Seattle, go along and enjoy.
As Connie continues to make use of her passport and cause trouble for British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, we’ll bring you more updates on her exploits, awards and screenings. More details are added regularly to our screenings page.
It’s been almost exactly a year since the film was shot. And what a year it has been, and what a year there still is to come. Chin chin!
