HOUSTON, TX. – Arthur Balder’s AMERICAN MIRROR: INTIMATIONS OF IMMORTALITY wins Remi Award as part of the Official Selection of the 53rd WorldFest Houston.
This new award is welcome by the team of Da Vinci Films as a new recognition for their work and dedication to a project that took 5 years in the making.
WorldFest is one of the oldest and largest film & video competitions in the world, with more than 4,500 category entries received from 74 countries in 2019. Actually WorldFest is 12 Major film & video competitions in one event, unlike Cannes, Sundance and Toronto, which are just 2 competitions for shorts and features only. Because of our 12 major competitions and the 200+ sub-categories, WorldFest does give a lot of awards, but they are both earned and deserved. No awards are given in any category unless the scores from the juries are high enough to place for honors. Overall only 15-20% of the total category entries actually win an award at WorldFest. However, everyone attending the Grand Awards Gala wins an award, as we only invite the actual winners, which makes for a delightful and enjoyable evening, since there are no disappointed “nominees” that do not win anything. Those that do not win an award are informed by email or letters prior to the festival. Read more here.
