Honored to be Awarded at the First Annual Lucky Strike Film Festival

Acclaimed and prolific production company Lucky Strike Films has just launched the much anticipated first annual Lucky Strike Film Festival on September 21st to 23rd with their awards ceremony on September 22nd at the Regency Valley Plaza 6 Theatre in North Hollywood. I was truly honored to be awarded an Excellence in Media award as well as winning for Best Short Film Thriller for “Strangers in A Book.” Besides giving filmmakers the opportunity to have their movies premiered before enthusiastic audiences, the Lucky Strike Film Festival also hosted an awards show, complete with a snazzy red carpet event and after party!

This innovative festival was founded by multi award-winning filmmaker Romane Simon. Asked why he created his own festival in addition to writing, directing and producing countless films and being a highly regarded author, Simon said, “it feels really good knowing that I created a platform for creative fellow filmmakers to showcase their work for a broad audience.” Traci Lynn Cowan and Ryder Davidson co-hosted the awards ceremony.
