Rest Stop confirms USA premiere at the Rhode Island International Film Festival nominated for Best Short Film

Super excited to announce that my short REST STOP has just confirmed it's USA premiere at the 19th Annual Flickers: Rhode Island International Film Festival and that we are in contention for their Oscar-qualifying grand prize of Best Short Film.

The festival was named by Moviemaker magazine as one of the "Top 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry fee" and seven of the films that have premiered at Rhode Island have won Academy awards, with 32 going on to be nominated, while many others gaining distribution with the likes of HBO, Showtime and IFC. 

I got this lovely letter from Shawn Quirk, the Program Director there. 

As part of the festival I had to send them a still of me hitchhiking there so here is a picture my boyfriend took of me, awkwardly standing in Trafalgar Square.
