July/Aug 2019 – LATEST NEWS
To add to their “Best Short Film’ accolade in LA, now 7 DAYS – The Story of Blind Dave Heeley has won another two awards. The latest is for “The Best Screenplay” at the Indo Global International Film Festival in Mumbai – heart of Bollywood.
This follows hot on the heels of the film being chosen to compete for “Best Feature Film” at The Oniros Film Awards The Oniros Film Awards. This will be a live televised event, held on 24th August in Saint-Vincent, Italy.
I am excited to be a small part of this beautiful project, produced by the talented team at Pixel Revolution. Because this is a ‘true-life’ story. And because it has already won ”Best Inspirational Film” at Oniros, in April.
Oniros originates from the word ‘Oneiros’ (meaning dreams in Greek). So the festival is just the place for a film about real life legend, Dave Heeley. Amazingly he fulfilled his dream to run 7 marathons, in 7 Days, on 7 continents. Totally Blind!!
I wish Dave, the Higgins brothers, and producer Nigel Davey all the best for the festival. The Oniros Film Awards encourage filmmakers to “dream big always” and that’s certainly what the team at Pixel Revolution believe in.
“Our mission is to discover high quality, ambitious films to promote filmmakers’ works and to help them realize their dreams.”
