Disco takes home awards at LANWIFF!

16 May

After a successful screening last week at the Hayworth, Disco was singled out from over a thousand submissions to receive the awards of Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Charlie Rowe at the Los Angeles New Wave IFF!

First of all, it’s brilliant for me to see any member of the cast win an award, they are all so amazing and so deserving of accolades that it’s great to see them being recognised. Charlie’s performance as Greg is a crucial element to the film and he pulls it off with panache and confidence; aside from that, his hair in the film is super 90’s awesomeness. So a massive congratulations to him!

I’d also just like to say a huge thanks to LANWIFF, festival director Jazz Smollett and the festival jury for the Best Screenplay award. It means a great deal as myself and James, along with our execs Rebecca, Kate and Gill, worked on the script tirelessly in the months leading up to the shoot. So it’s really nice to have that aspect singled out as worth commending.

Stay tuned for more news homies!
