Seven Awards at Five Continents

There was much jubilation at FTFHQ when Beyond Staffing swept in a total of seven awards at the Five Continents Film Festival in Venezuela this month. 

The short won three major awards (listed below left) including Best Comedy, and 4 Special Mention Awards for Cinematography, Direction. Editing and Best Supporting Actor. 

Lead Actress Adrianna Astle picked up the Best Actress Award, while the third was awarded for the dark and witty Art Direction featured in the film. 

This continues a cracking run which was only started in November and will continue through the next year.  So far the film has won ten awards and received one nomination (Best Actress, for Adrianna), We are naturally hoping that there will be a few more laurels to add to the poster.
