Official Selection - NSI Online Short Film Festival

We are extremely excited and proud to announce that our short film ‘After The Rain’ has been officially selected for the NSI Online Short Film Festival. The festival is hosted by the National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI) a national training school widely known for its prestigious training courses for Canadian writers, directors and producers working in film and television.

‘After The Rain’ is scheduled to premiere Monday, September 10, on the NSI Canada website along several other short film who will compete for 3 awards: The Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award, The A&E Short Filmmakers Award and The Bite Comedy Award. ‘After The Rain’ will most likely be eligible in The Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award category (Laura Aloi) and The A&E Short Filmmakers Award. Links and blogs about the selected films will be posted on the NSI website nsi-canada.ca in the first few weeks in August.

Our film has also been featured on several other sites, including IndieFilmTips.com. Created in May 2012, Indie Film Tips is a resource for filmmakers to learn from the experiences of other filmmakers. On his blog we talk about the difficulties we encountered while filming ‘After The Rain’.

The most challenging process besides writing and editing the script must of been finding the perfect timing to shoot. We had the hard challenge to deal with weather. Most of the short takes place under the rain, and ends up with a dried up street with with some sunshine and rainbows.

‘After The Rain’ Short Film Premiere

ATR invitation
A couple of weeks ago we finally had the opportunity to show a premiere of our short film ‘After The Rain’. In fact, in was more of a private screening rather than a premiere. We decided to put this night together to thank the cast and crew for all the hard work and ambition they had put into this film, and at the same time give them a chance to watch the film before anyone else.

We would like to thank everyone who came to support our short and made this night a memorable one for us, and also thank the ones who were not able to make it, but were a part of this production and helped us make this movie. We hope you enjoyed the night and food as much as we did, and we’re extremely happy to finally get some feedback from all of you on the finished movie.

We also want to say that this night would not have been possible without the hard work from Tanya Carlucci and Peter Filato.

Tanya from Nikka Weddings & Events helped us plan and put the entire evening up together as well as prepare the outstanding ‘After The Rain’ themed sweet table. You can see more of Tanya’s {Nikka Events} work and follow her blog at:
