You know … the film I made before diving headlong into FILTH (and I mean that exactly as it sounds) You may have noticed I haven’t talked about it much. HIVE has received a lot of rejection notices from festivals over the past 6 months. It’s not something one talks about since it can be disheartening. I’ve by no means written the film off but I’m well aware that HIVE didn’t engage people the way I’d hoped. But that’s okay. It may not be a great film but I still like it and I don’t regret making it. That’s why it came as a pleasant surprise this week when I received word that it has been accepted to 2 festivals. The Montreal International Animation Film Festival and the World Con 75 Film Festival in Helsinki, Finland. I’ll be damned.
