VOLITION’s New York City Premiere was a huge success, playing to packed crowds at the NYC Horror Film Festival! To top it off, the science-fiction thriller took home three top prizes, including the awards for BEST SCIENCE-FICTION FEATURE FILM (to Tony Dean Smith & Ryan W. Smith), BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY (to Byron Kopman), and BEST SOUND DESIGN (to Sharpe Sound, Gregorio Gomez and composer Matthew Rogers)! Congrats to the entire team, and thank you NYC Horror Film Festival for the warm reception.
After a whirlwind week of VOLITION playing in three over-lapping festivals (Whistler Film Festival, Other Worlds Austin, and NYC Horror Film Festival), Director Tony Dean Smith takes home the prestigious Best BC Director Award at Whistler! We couldn’t be more proud! Thank you to Whistler Film Festival and all the others for screening our film to packed crowds. We so appreciate the support! Below is Tony’s acceptance speech from the Whistler Film Festival Award Ceremony.
