The Corridor and Detention win at Fantasia 

Nova Scotian filmmakers get the love at Montreal fantasy film fest

The three week (!) Fantasia 2011 Film Festival in Montreal is complete. Our homeboys done good.

The L’Écran Fantastique Prize went to Detention, the feature film co-written by former Coast film critic Mark Palermo, “for its contagious energy, its capacity to generate gags and comic situations based on concepts stemming from horror movies (slasher films) and science fiction.” Detention also tied for silver for an audience award, the Guru Prize for the Most Energetic Feature. We look forward to seeing Detention in this city soon. (Maybe at the Atlantic Film Festival? We'll get the news of the AFF 2011 line-up August 23.)

And the Gold audience award for Best Canadian or Quebecois Feature went to Evan Kelly and Josh MacDonald's wintry horror The Corridor.

Congrats to all the winners!
