Awesome Con 2018 approaches and – big news! – Apocalypse Rock is headlining one of their screening blocks!
For those who aren’t familiar with this convention, Awesome Con is:
“Washington DC’s Comic Con … a celebration of geek culture, bringing over 70,000 fans together with their favorite stars from across comics, movies, television, toys, games, and more…”
The whole team is looking forward to representing the film and getting to check out this rad convention. Our own Robin C. Farrell has attended this festival before; returning several years in a row (even wrote a blog post about it over at DUO Media Productions). She’ll be our guide. But even she says, “showcasing Apocalypse Rock as part of the Star Wipe Films team will definitely ‘level up’ the experience!”
Later in April, we’re headed to PA for the West Chester Film Festival for a third time. Our film Last Friday In April, has been officially selected.
This is big; Last Friday is one of the best films in the collection. The hero of the film, Denny Murray (also played by Doug Powell), makes a cameo appearance in Apocalypse Rock! There’s a beautiful irony as well, since the first day of the West Chester Film Festival just happens to be Arbor Day: the last Friday in April. No word on nominations yet, but considering how much laughter this film generates with each screening, we’re hoping we have a shot at ‘Best Comedy’ and ‘Audience Favorite,’ following Apocalypse Rock‘s example.
