If you are based in New York, be sure to check out Tom Quinn’s film The New Year Parade on Reel 13 tonight. Tom was in the IFP Narrative Lab a couple of years before us and has been a fantastic mentor to me and Ron in making Stranger Things. The New Year Parade is the story of a brother and sister making it through the first year of their parents’ separation. It was the winner of the Slamdance Jury Prize for Best Narrative and is a nominee in the Independent Spirit Awards for the John Cassavetes Award this year. The film is also available on Netflix and Amazon.
