Festival Updates!

Hello everyone and happy new 2016! We hope your new year is going wonderfully!

So, starting out this new year, we screened our film at Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema in early January. We had great screenings with packed audience and the best part - WE WON 7 AWARDS! (UNBELIEVABLE!) We received The Best Short Film, Best Directing, Best Cinematography, Best Musical Score (goes to MONO!), Best Ensemble Cast, Best Editing and Mary Austin Award for Excellence in Directing (Best Female Directing Award). It was overwhelming experience to say at least - We went up on stage 7 times and thanked everyone, including you - our supporters. 

Now, we are gearing up to begin our 2016 festival circuit. In March and April, we have screenings in Pasadena, CA, Cleveland, OH, Sarasota, FL, and back again in NYC. We can't announce the name of festivals just yet, but we will send you the screening dates once the festivals announce their line-ups. 

Thank you again for all your support and love. Everywhere we visit, you are always with us in our heart, and we are so grateful to call you as our family. 

Wishing you all a very happy new year :)

Infinite love, Mitsuyo
