Monday Mishmash - Festivals and Transylvanian castles

Transylvanian castle

* Un homme bien (the French film adaptation of my screenplay A Good Man) will be shown at the Dracula Horror and Fantasy Festival in Romania in October. One of the screenings will take place in a famous Transylvanian castle. The film will also be screened the 11th of October at the Indiana Short Film Festival. My vampire story will be part of the Saturday Nite Fright.

* Can't go to these festivals? You can now also discover Un homme bien / A Good Man on FestTV, the VOD channel of the Benelux horror distributor Zeno Pictures. Or you can download the original screenplay from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, or Smashwords.

* To top it off, Un homme bien / A Good Man has received a diploma for "higher cinematic culture for solving social issues" at the Krivoy Rog Film Festival. 

* I'll be present at four different festivals this autumn, starting with the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival on Thursday, and then the Sitges Film Festival, the Film Festival of Ghent, and Razor Reel.

* I've started preparing the Halloween edition of Traveling Cats. Expect lots of cemetery pictures this season.

* I finished my book on Avalon. I'll be sending it out to the first beta-readers this week.

* Also wrote another short film script: Next To Her. More about that soon.

  6. Congrats! I hope your movie's a big hit! I read the screenplay's description on Amazon and it sounds great -- I'll download a copy and read it in a couple of weeks once I'm back from the Stratford Festival and have a bit more time.

  13. That's a beautiful photo, though I'd be frightened to pay a visit. I wouldn't pass it up, though. It's a fun time of year, especially for you.

  14. How great that your movie will be a part of it. It sounds like a lot of scary fun. I'm a big chicken, so I'd probably not visit that castle after dark.
