Blackbird nominated for Student Academy Award



It was just announced that Blackbird is one of six regional finalists for the 2011 Student Academy Awards.  There will be a screening in Portland on April 26, and at that time the judges will choose which films will go on to the National competition.  I'm so happy for everyone who helped make the film possible: the cast, crew, and all of our mentors.  It's truly an honor to be recognized!

Blackbird will also be playing in the Athens International Film Festival (in Ohio) later this month.  We're waiting to hear about other festivals in the near future!  More news soon...
