NM Filmmakers Heading to Cinequest

From the Duke City Shootout website...

Local Filmmakers Make Mark Nationally

Two of the movies made at last year’s 48 Hour Film Project competition in Albuquerque are getting noticed. “Sweetie,” the chilling little piece about a girl in an icebox, directed by Shootout alumnus Scotty Milder and starring our own Chad Brummett, was chosen one of the top ten films produced by 48 Hours last year around the world. It will be on a DVD, and is still in the running for Best Film. The winner and runners-up will be announced at Cinequest, held Feb. 27-March 9. “Sweetie” was chosen as best film in the Albuquerque competition and screened in competition at the Shootout premiere.
Isaac Kappy’s “Time Cougars,” a time-travel comedy revolving around a failed driver’s test, won the National Film Challenge. It will be screened at Cinequest. Congratulations to both.
