“Josh” Finalist in Prestigious International Film Festival

The short documentary “Josh,” by amazing Vancouver film maker Angelina Cantada, was accepted as a finalist in the 2011 MY HERO International Film Festival on Friday.  Winners of the festival will be announced on November 7th; Angelina and I are very happy to be among the finalists in such a prestigious festival!

From the My Hero International Film Festival acceptance letter:

“All 2011 winning films will be featured in our virtual screening room (www.myhero.com/films).  These films will become part of our ever-growing Global Hero Archive.  MY HERO honors the subjects of certain films with special Hero Awards, in which case we will screen a clip from that project.

This year we had more films submitted to the Festival than ever before, and are very excited about our slate of films.   Congratulations again on becoming a finalist in such an illustrious group.”

The short video is below.  I am hearing great things about this film everywhere I go – have a look!

    Josh that is fantastic! Congratulations to you both on being nominated. I hope you win-the film was both enlightening and inspiring and as I’ve said before, paints living with a disability is the most positive of lights, in the most authentic way possible-you just showed up as who you really are. Good luck! I am keeping my fingers crossed!
