Congratulations and best wishes to New York filmmaker Myna Joseph as she heads overseas to the Croisette. Her short film, MAN--which won the Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative Short at the recent Florida Film Festival (thus qualifying it for Oscar consideration in next year's Academy Awards)--was selected for the distinguished Directors Fortnight program at Cannes, where it will be the only American short in her film program.
Myna's stark and disturbing tale of two sisters was also invited to be part of this summer's Sundance Institute's Art House Project shorts program tour, a formidable collection of award winners and favorites from last year's festival (some of which appeared at Florida as well). So it looks like MAN will not only be showcased over in France this week, but will also be getting an encore performance at Enzian in the coming months--exciting news!
