After a wonderful winter in which Dependence racked up 5 official selections including two awards, the team got back to work on 4 new episodes. During this time, the festival news had quieted down….
Then the summer came and with it a beam of festival sunshine that never went cold. In June, the series was nominated for Best Web/New Media in the IndieX Festival as well as an “Honorable Mention” from the LA Underground Film Series.
Then in July Dependence received an award of Merit from the WRPN.TV Global Webisode Competition, and our leading man, Kelvin Oppong, received the Award of Exceptional Merit!
Then things got extremely hot in August. To kick off the month, The Brightside Tavern Film Festival screened Episode 4. Kelvin picked up a nomination for “Best Actor-Drama”, and the series won “Best NJ Short-Drama”!
Then Dependence went on to become a Semi-Finalist in jellyFest- Season 3, while also receiving official selections in 3 September festivals: Newark International Film Festival, Validate Yourself Film Festival, and the NJ Webfest!
To end the month, Dependence collected 3 awards in the August 2019 edition of the Top Shorts Film Festival. Our Writers, Cris & Danielle Thorne, won a Finalist award making it into the Top 15 in the Screenplay category. The series won the “Honorable Mention” in the Web Series category, and picked up the “Best Ensemble” Award!
The Fall season looks to be just as exciting with screenings in Newark 9/6, Brooklyn 9/14 and Montclair, NJ 9/21. To top it all off, we will be releasing our 4 new episodes to close out Season 1 on 9/23. Stay tuned!
