On A Roll

Between Festival acceptances, nominations, and now screenplay results, the last few weeks have been nothing short of mind-blowing. Truthfully, Chaos Management truly started it’s run this year at NOVA Film Fest and it’s been non-stop since then. When you add in distribution for A Rendezvous with ShortsTV in  the US, I’m not sure if my head is going to explode or not.

When I have a run of success, it’s either been for a film or a screenplay but never for both at the same time. Not this summer. Both Chaos Management and my screenplay Birthday Blues are riding highs.

How good has it been over these last couple of weeks? Let me tell you…


Las Vegas International Screenplay Competition

This is the first year for the Las Vegas International Screenwriting Competition, an event that prides itself on a jury that is made up of award-winning writers who read blind; meaning the scripts were submitted without any discerning marks other than the title.

Birthday Blues was first named Category Winner for Mystery Screenplays and then named to the Top Five list for all screenplays submitted. I couldn’t be prouder.

Action on Film International Film Festival

Birthday Blues has been named as an Official Selection Screenplay to the Action on Film Int’l Film Festival. While the script is not eligible for competition due to my volunteer status with the Festival, Official Selection is a stamp of approval that helps me introduce the script to other professionals at the Festival. If I want to talk to distributors or producers about the script while at AOF, it’s easier to do so with an official selection status. I’m excited that the Festival has shown the kind confidence in the screenplay that I have in it.

AOF 2016 Screenplay




Amazing news from MartialCon; a nomination for Best Director. The Festival, Cosplay and Trick Event is the first of its kind. The films will be played through out the convention floor at film kiosks. It’s a great way to receive multiple screenings in order to maximize audience exposure. The Event takes place August 19-21 at the Long Beach Convention Center. If you’re in the L.A. area, put it on your “must do” calendar.

I’m so honoured to receive a nomination for Chaos Management!

Austin Revolution Film Festival

Great news for Team Chaos. The Austin Revolution Film Festival has honoured our film with a nomination for Best Foreign Short Film. The Festival is in its fifth year and has is committed to indie film and filmmakers. I am so impressed with the level of communication I’ve received from the Festival. If you’re in Austin from September 20-24, 2016, feel free to check out our screening.

Covellite International Film Festival

The Festival takes place from September 15-18, 2016 in Butte, Montana. Butte has a fascinating history and is one of the largest national historic sites in the United States. It seems fitting that a place with a fascinating story to tell is hosting people who love to tell them.

Valley Film Festival

Valley Film Festival has been around since 2001.  It’s the first Film Festival ever situated in the San Fernando Valley. This is another gem of a Festival that is committed to the education, production and distribution of film. If you’re in the North Hollywood area from September 28 -October 2, I hope you’ll pop in and check out the screenings.




Film can feel like a constant struggle to find ways to create content and then to have that content viewed and respected. This has been one of those few weeks that I thought could only happen in my dreams. I could get used to this kind of a run. I hope it’s a prelude for more to come.


  1. So very happy for you Michelle! Your talent and hard work are finally reaping the recognition and reward you deserve!! I know this is only the start of great things:)
