Kilroy J. Oldster once wrote, “Exiting from any long-term relationship comes at great personal expense, which explains why so many people are understandably reluctant to endure the cost of severance. Beginnings and endings are always dramatic and occasionally traumatic.”
That sense of discomfort, loss, and the catharsis that ensues, are among the concepts examined in FRANK & EMMET, a new short written and directed by Carlos Fernandez Puertolas. While it has been competing at festivals worldwide and has picked up a number of honors and accolades along the way, we’re particularly pleased to announce that the piece has been selected to screen at the Academy Award®-Qualifying INDY SHORTS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.
You’ll be able to watch the film virtually, or in-person, from July 19-24.
For additional information, please visit www.IndyShorts.org, @heartlandfilm, or @frankemmetfilm (links in bios).
Our thanks not only to the festival’s programmers, judges, and sponsors, but to the entire cast and crew.
