2013

The ReelHeART Spirit Award goes to the filmmaker, documentary or documentary subject who most demonstrates the “Indie Spirit”, through pride of film production, promotion of film, audience engagement and producing a memorable contribution on film. This year we could only give this award to 1 person who embodies this spirit for her tireless efforts in promoting her film and her passion for making it – Krista Dzialoszynski.

ReelHeART Mentorship Award
Short Screenplay
“Love Letters” (Canada)
Written by April Lee
 9th Annual ReelHeART
International Film Festival
2013

The ReelHeART Mentoring Award is an award we should’ve given out a few years back. We’ve had numerous filmmakers return with a script after being inspired at the Live Reads. We’ve also had many writers, return with a film after having having their script read.

This year, our inaugural Mentorship Award goes to an attorney turned actress writer. We first met her last year at the auditions for the ReelHeART Live Reads. She was cast in a very emotional script that she performed with her fellow cast mates in June. By December she had entered not one but two short scripts into ReelHeART.

She embodies what ReelHeART is all about: Interaction, Inspiration and Individual Mentoring. This year we could only give this award to 1 person who embodies this spirit for her tireless efforts sprinting into action to have her creative voice heard – Miss April Lee.

  1. Browsing through this list again and reliving my pride over seeing a live read of my first short screenplay and winning the inaugural Mentorship Award. :) This award came at a crucial time in my creative development and has spurred me to continue doing what I love. For this, I am truly thankful. Look forward to next year’s fest!
