Stranger Things has won the Best Feature Narrative Award at the 11th Woodstock Film Festival. Last night at the Maverick Award Ceremony at the BSP Studios, Kingston, the film was honoured alongside documentary Marwencol (Jeff Malmberg). Bruce Beresford received the 2010 Honorary Maverick Award, Keanu Reeves the Excellence in Acting Award and the Trailblazer Award went to Bob Berney. Our NYU classmate, Luke Matheney won Best Student Short Film for God of Love.

We were up against such outstanding competition in the narrative picture category and we’re gobsmacked to have won. Big thanks to all of our friends, family and supporters who helped make this film possible. Congrats to our cast and crew, with whom we share the award. Thanks also to Meira Blaustein, Laurent Retjo and everyone else at the Woodstock Film Festival. We’ve had a fantastic time here.

Our final screening at WFF takes place this afternoon at 1:30pm at Upstate Films Woodstock on Tinker Street. There will be a Q&A after the screening.
