I Am Henry Wins A Gold REMI At WorldFest-Houston
I AM HENRY wins a prestigious GOLD REMI award at the 49th Annual WorldFest-Houston
We are thrilled and delighted to announce that I AM HENRY, which was officially selected into the 49th Annual WorldFest-Houston International Film and Video Festival, has won a prestigious Gold REMI award. Writer/Director Jan Hendrik Verstraten was at the Gala ceremony on 16th April 2016, to collect the award.
“This is an amazing achievement. An exceptional team of talented actors and filmmakers has made this possible. This award is a recognition of their contribution. Our next step is to develop this short into a full length feature or mini-series for TV.”
The Annual WorldFest-Houston is one of the oldest and best-loved independent film festivals in the world. It gave first honours to Spielberg, George Lucas, Oliver Stone, Ridley Scott, David Lynch and hundreds more with their very first film.
Being part of the Official Selection is a great honour. Only the very best are chosen from literally thousands of submissions.
J Hunter Todd, Chairman and Founding Director, the 49th WorldFest-Houston said:
“The Remi Winners of this year, our 49th WorldFest-Houston will be the Spielberg’s and Ang Lee’s of tomorrow!”
The REMI Award is named after the great Western Artist Frederic Remington, who captured the spirit of Texas and The American West with his remarkable paintings and sculptures.
This brings I AM HENRY a grand total of 13 festival awards and 2 nominations to date – a great achievement for the team. Congratulations everyone!
