The judges of the Canada International Film Festival have selected Neema and Sid Go Totally Off Grid as one of ten screenplays to receive the Royal Reel Award for excellence.
The awards ceremony will be held in Vancouver on April 9th as part of the Canada International Film Festival. From the website:
“The Canada International Film Festival has firmly established itself among the top film festivals in Canada. Held each year in the beautiful and cosmopolitan city of Vancouver, British Columbia, the festival brings the very best of world cinema to Canada from over 90 countries around the world.”
Note to Neema and Sid: Please be on your very best behavior in case any royals actually do make an appearance. Neema, try not to get too overexcited and refrain from bouncing in your chair. Remember all your mother’s lectures on proper deportment. Sid, try not to fidget too much in your gown. It may not be your first choice of wardrobe, but one mustn’t ruffle le beau monde.
