Last year I submitted a film I had made called 'Lost' to a film festival/art installation/experiment (not entirely sure what category it falls under) called VHS Mixtape. It's taken a little while to hear back from them but this past weekend I received an email saying that I'd been selected to be a part of the first mixtape! Even though this isn't perhaps an official film festival, it marks the first time that I've made 'official selection' to something and been rewarded a laurel. So, small drop in the ocean, but an important one.
Anyway, check them out, what they're doing is pretty crazy but totally cool.
