GreasePaint screened at the 11th Annual SouthSide Film Festival in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Glenn Koehler, the SSFF director, stated, “This year we have amassed what I believe to be one of the most outstanding line-ups of films we’ve had since I joined the organization.” Mr. Koehler and his selection committee brought GreasePaint to Bethlehem along with many films that screened at major film festivals. 7 of the films screened at the Sundance Film Festival, 3 films screened at the Festival de Cannes and there were many films that screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and SXSW. We were so honored to just be selected amongst these great films, but that was just the beginning.
Although this festival is considered non-competitive, last year SSFF introduced the Linny and Beall Fowler Audience Awards in honor of the Fowlers and their financial support to the SSFF through the Fowler Family Foundation. Each year, one of these prestigious awards is given to the favorite short film and favorite feature film as voted by the audience. Even with such a stacked program of films, the SouthSide audience has spoken. It was announced at the festival’s closing night party that GreasePaint won the Linny and Beall Fowler Audience Award for Best Feature! Not only are we so honored to receive this award, being chosen over films that screened at major festivals, but we are happy to share this award with The Bachelor Weekend, an irish comedy directed by John Butler that screened at Tribeca.
