Βραβείο στον Μάριο Γαρέφο για τους "Δύσκολους έρωτες"

Ένα ακόμη βραβείο για την ελληνική μικρού μήκους ταινία έρχεται από το 41st Annual Worldfest στο Χιούστον του Τέξας. Το βραβείο ονομάζεται Remi και στο παρελθόν το έχουν αποκτήσει με τις πρώτες τους δουλειές ονόματα όπως των: Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ang Lee, John Lee Hancock, Ridley Scott, Robert Townsend, Randall Kleiser, The Coen Brothers, Spike Lee, Oliver Stone και David Lync. Το WORLDFEST είναι το τρίτο πιο παλιό φεστιβάλ μετά το Tribeca και το Sundance.

Φέτος βραβεύτηκε για την μικρού μήκους ταινία του «Δύσκολοι έρωτες» (την είδαμε εφέτος στη Δράμα – αρκετά παραπεταμένη είναι η αλήθεια και φυσικά αγνοημένη στις διαδικασίες των βραβείων ) ο σκηνοθέτης Μάριος Γαρέφος.

Το WORLDFEST είναι το τρίτο πιο παλιό φεστιβάλ μετά το Tribeca και το Sundance. Ενα φεστιβάλ που κάθε χρόνο απονέμει στις τέσσερις καλύτερες ταινίες μικρού μήκους τα εξής βραβεία:
Ο σκηνοθέτης Μάριος Γαρέφος κλίθηκε να παραλάβει ένα απο τα παραπάνω βραβεία .

Η απονομή θα γίνει στις 19 Απριλίου από το Grand Awards Gala dinner όπου και γίνεται η επίσημη απονομή. Ο Μάριος θα παρευρεθεί εκεί για την μεγάλη στιγμή που δικαιώνει την ταινία του!

Δράμα... Δράμμα πότε θα καταλάβεις τα λάθη σου?

Συγχαρητήρια απο μας στον Μάριο και ευχές για περισσότερες και καλύτερες ταινίες.

Dear Marios ...
> We are delighted to confirm that you have been nominated to receive one of the top four awards in your competition category for your entry. Unlike other festivals, we nominate only the four top entries, and we present Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards, thus you are assured to win one of these top awards at the Gala Remi Awards Dinner! The great thing about WorldFest is that we only invite Remi Winners to the Grand Awards Gala, so you can bring clients, associates and friends knowing that you are assured of a win! (Unlike the Academy Awards, where the room starts filling up with losers!) The WorldFest Remi Award is an 11x14 metallic framed award plaque, or perhaps even a Special Jury or Remi Grand Award Statuette. There is also the Kodak Crystal Vision Award for Cinematography plus other awards. You may now use the Remi Award Winner logos that are featured on our website under WorldFest History and Past Winners! (This is not a notification of being screened at the festival. Most of our Remi Winners are not screened for the general public, just for the juries. Those letters come from the Screening Committee and all those films/videos have been selected for some time. For instance, we have never screened the Best Medical Film, or the Best Sales & Marketing video!)
> You are cordially invited to attend the 41th WorldFest-Houston April 11-20 for the entire 10-day festival or, if your time is short, the final awards weekend, Friday, April 18th through Sunday April 20, to depart on Monday the 21st. You are our VIP guest at no cost for the Grand Awards Dinner & Cocktail Reception on Saturday, the 19th. You may invite as many guests as you like to join you for the additional charge of $150 per person including the cocktail reception, gourmet dinner and wine. You may reserve up to one table for 6-10 if desired and there is no extra charge to reserve the table. Since seating is very limited, we must restrict everyone to just one reserved table. The Remi Awards Gala Dinner is at The Renaissance Hotel - Saturday, the 19th, Champagne Cocktail Reception ~ 7pm, & Awards Dinner ~ 8pm. Should you want to come in on Wednesday the 16th, for the six seminars (writing screenplays, cinematography, casting, distribution and producing & directing the Indie film) held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we offer the VIP Platinum All Festival Pass to our award winners and their guests only -- at a very special discount price of just $200 per person! (Regular price to the public is $500). On Sunday April 20th, you can join us as our VIP guest for the Houston Yacht Club/WorldFest Regatta and Texas BBQ with a special VIP tour of NASA and Space Center Houston! This is all included with both the Platinum Pass & Awards Dinner Pass. Your complimentary VIP Awards dinner pass does include the NASA/Space Center Houston tour, Regatta and Texas BBQ! The extra guest Remi Awards Dinner tickets also include the NASA Tour, the Texas BBQ and the Galveston Bay Regatta! If you have to return Sunday night, you can make a flight after 9pm.
> Our Official Headquarters Hotel is The Renaissance Houston Hotel-Greenway Plaza (713) 629-1200. (WHEN YOU CALL PLEASE ASK FOR PAT IN RESERVATIONS). They have very special WorldFest rates starting at only $109 a night for a double, and just $150 for a Suite - (Regular room rates are $299 a night) - but you must mention WorldFest for the discounts. For more info just go to: http://marriott.com/property/propertyPage/HOUBR -- you can check out the hotel information on our website at www.worldfest.org -- under WorldFest 2008 - click on Accommodations. For the best deals on airfare, check www.cheaptickets.com or www.expedia.com ($200+ will get you here within the USA) or your travel agent for special discounts. We suggest that you fly into Houston (IAH or Hobby) and rent a Budget car (800-527-0700) (WorldFest Discount Code U064514) or take the airport shuttle to The Renaissance Hotel located in the Greenway Plaza area (not walking distance to the theater, just about 3 miles away). WorldFest does provide complimentary theater shuttles between the hotels and the AMC Studio 30 and special VIP coaches to NASA and the Regatta and return.)
> Our festival Attend Brochure is being mailed/faxed to you. It is also on our website for quick reference. Our official hotel has shuttle bus service to the films all during the festival and for the final weekend, but Houston is Big, just like Texas, so a car is highly recommended (Budget is our official rent-a-car service, rates @ $25 & up!). When you arrive in Houston, you must check in with Dennis at our festival registration desk at The Renaissance Hotel, lower level, so that we may confirm your award presentation. We expect to have more than five hundred International Indie Filmmakers attending WorldFest, so it's a really great opportunity for networking, seeing wonderful new Indie features and shorts and attending superb professional Master Classes and Production Seminars. Complete feature and short film listing and schedules are on our webby at www.worldfest.org and we will have total festival details up on the website soon. Complete final Remi Award Winner details will be posted on Monday, April 21th on our website! Of course, duplicate Remi Awards are available after the festival in many different formats and are pictured on-line. These are great for associates, clients and those involved in your Remi Award Winning production.
