I hope you're all following the HUM Facebook page by now where you'll get regular updates of our progress. But for those who have managed to avoid social media thus far I'll keep you posted here of the major developments.
The big festival news is that HUM has got an Official Selection at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal! This is huge for us as it is one of the most respected genre film festivals in the world:
"Fantasia is the most important and prestigious genre film festival on this continent." - Quentin Tarantino
“Fantasia is a shrine” - Guillermo del Toro
We'll let you know the screening date when we get it but it will be sometime in July and will probably be the World Premiere of HUM unless any other festival we are waiting to hear from screens it earlier.
We've also been shortlisted for Best Film at the Loch Ness Film Festival and will be screened there on 28th July.
We are really happy that, alongside the selection for the European Genre Forum, the film industry is recognising our efforts and giving us confidence that we can raise the funds needed to go on and make HUM a feature film.
