Sunny Awarded with Top Awards at Northeast Film Festival

Sunny in the Dark walked away with three of the top awards from the Northeast Film Festival.  They were awarded with "Best Actor" for Jay Huguley's performance as Jonah, "Best Actress" for Hannah Ward's performance as Sunny, and Courtney Ware received "Best Director".  

We couldn't be more thrilled and thankful for the awards given!  The film was in such good company of all the films at the festival!


We are so excited and honored to have been awarded "Best First Feature" by the Arizona International Film Festival!  We had an incredible time at the screening and are honored to be recognized with our fellow filmmakers.  Please check out the link to see the whole list of winners!

Thanks again to Giulio and AIFF Team!

Arizona International Film Festival

On Sunday evening, we had an incredible screening at AIFF!  Special thanks to festival director, Guilio Scalinger for his kindness and hospitality.  Director Courtney Ware had the honor of participating in a filmmaker's panel that morning.  After meeting some of the other filmmakers and audiences of Tucson, we definitely felt that we were sharing the film with family.  We had a great Q&A after the screening which covered everything from our incredible casting process to working with animals.  We can't wait to bring the film to the next festival and audience!


We've finally had the chance to announce all of our festival screenings that will be happening in April!  If you're nearby one of these areas, we'd love to see you at:

Arizona International Film Festival
