We’ll stop talking about Prone to the Drone when it stops being so excellent.
Firstly, Shawn Spina was interviewed for the Fairfield Champion about the creation of Prone to the Drone before its showing at Urban Stories: Prototype.
It was then announced that Prone to the Drone was not only a part of the Wide Angle Film Festival‘s Public Screening Program, but that Shawn Spina’s photo (taken by Curious Creator, Alexandra Olguin!) is the face of this year’s festival!
The Wide Angle Film Festival is an accessible program of international, award-winning short films that reflect the lives of people living with disability. The Festival screens through Tasmania, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Territory each year to audiences in excess of 50, 000 Australians. All sessions are free to attend and a suite of access is available. For those in Western Sydney, you can see Prone to the Drone and the other entrants in the Public Screening Program at Riverside Theatre in Parramatta from 24th November – 24th December.
We’re so proud to be a part of this festival, and to know that Prone to the Drone is reaching audiences in accessible, public spaces across Australia!
Lastly, we entered Prone to the Drone into Canadian Shorts, and were not only officially selected for the festival, but received an award of commendation! Our short film is officially award-winning!
We’re incredibly proud of the reach the film has made, and how its message about finding connection and humour in the darkest, most isolating times, has continued to make an impact with audiences.
