The Invisible Kingdom was one of five finalists for best screenplay at the Polish Independent Film Festival in Warsaw. The others were Ozzie Banicki’s Elisia, Jacqueline Frazier’s Number 8 Wire, Robert Shill’s Farkle, and the eventual overall winner, Massimiliano Mauceri’s The Job Offer. Special congratulations to Massimiliano, who placed three scripts in the top ten.
Both Neema and Sid Go Totally Off Grid and All Living Things have been selected for the Stargate Galactic International Sci-Fi Film Festival, which takes place August 25-28 in Texas.
Note to Neema and Sid: I trust you’ve both been hitting the books for your high school finals and could use a little break? If I could ask a favor, please keep an eye on All Living Things for me. I think of it as your mother’s story, Neema. It tells how she once held together a whole spaceship full of interplanetary refugees during a challenging time, and did it with with grace and goodwill. She even had to cope with some giant spiders! Sid, I understand you find All Living Things a little embarrassing because it’s also the story of how your parents met. But if I hadn’t written it, there would be no you, and no Neema either, and that’s a fate I prefer not to contemplate.
