Best International Film Award

At the Harlem Film Festival

Dead Mans Cards was accepted into the Harlem Film Festival which was on between the 5th October to the 9th October. The film was screened on the 5th October and because of audience demand was also shown on the 8th October.

It was a bit of a rush for me as I arrived back in the UK in the early hours of the 6th October from a week away and then I had to get home, pack a suitcase for New York and left straight for the airport for a plane to the US! I am pleased that I went as it was a great experience and all the people who were involved with the festival were very friendly and accommodating. I also met Hollywood star Mario Van Peebles who was being honoured for his achievements in the film industry.

The best news of all for all involved with DMC was that we won the Best International Film Award, so all of our hard work has been recognised. We are hoping that distribution will be soon, I will keep you posted.
