The touching documentary I wrote about last week, “Looking for Else,”was awarded Best Production at the L.A. Femme Film Festival!
Sandy Kopitopoulos, the director and the grandson of the film’s namesake, emailed me to share the great news:
“I was so nervous and so sure that some other film would win that I didn’t bother inviting anybody, except for a few friends from Switzerland and my production assistant. What a mistake on my part to underestimate the film.”
Sandy also reported that because of the buzz the award generated, there is now talk of distribution. Though it’s too early to count his chickens, Sandy is hoping to be back in Los Angeles very soon to meet with the people who want to buy his film.
Mazal Tov Sandy!
