Chris and Don were there at the Warner Grand theater to accept their award, we sent the statue to Gib who was in New York at the time. Apparently Chris and Don said they were literally covering their mouths and waving their free hand to stay silent and listen to Guillermo's praise.
The festival founder also gave special consideration to "Shadow of the Unnamable" by Sascha Renninger for Best Short Lovecraft Adaptation.
Once again we thank all the filmmakers for their submissions this year.
