Southern Shorts Awards - A Winning Festival

This past weekend, Songs from the Deep screened at the Southern Shorts Awards in Roswell, Georgia. Hosted by Festival Director Stephen Sherwood, the festival is a celebration of independent filmmaking and of the short film. Stephen and his team were fantastic in making this a filmmaker-centric experience where each film was treated with respect and care. Luckily, many of the filmmakers were able to attend so it was a wonderful opportunity to share a diverse selection of films with their creators.

The evening Awards Ceremony, broadcast live on Roku, was the culmination of an exciting and educating day. Songs from the Deep was a nominee for Best of Made in Georgia and was awarded the Award of Excellence in the Made in Georgia category. The film was represented by Grey Gowder, Co-Producer Xixi Zhu, and Composer Dillon Kelly. We were honored to have this film recognized and were thrilled to share it with the other filmmakers.

The next stop for this film is in New York’s East Village, so we are excited to return to the New Filmmakers Film Festival with a new film to share.
