The Longue vue sur le court film festival will be hosting the final screening for WICHITA as part of their Official Selection. Quebec filmmaker Sergine Dumais and Maxim Roy will be in attendance.
The short that has mesmerized audiences at the Aspen Shortsfest, Hollyshorts, Austin Film Festival, Cinequest, LA Shorts to name a few and that made the top 20 list of “must watch” shorts at Short Shorts Film Festivalin Tokyo, will now be available to audiences in France and Africa on Canal+. The rights of the rest of the world are presently available.
Among the twenty-five awards that WICHITA has collected in the film festivals circuit, four were for “Best Short”, four for “Best Director” and six for Maxim Roy as “Best Actress.” And while some festivals programmed it in the “drama” section, WICHITA also won three awards for “Best Comedy”.
About the short:
WICHITA tells the story of a modern woman, Sara, who receives an unexpected request from her husband while in the arms of her lover. Sara only has a few minutes to race home before she gets busted. To stall for time, Sara asks endless questions about Wichita, KS. What’s Cowtown like? And Kirstie Alley’s house? What about Pizza Hut? Didn’t that start there too? In this crazy and humorous race-against-the-clock, we see how fast a woman will run to save her marriage.
About the creative team:
