Thrilled to announce that we're an official selection for the 12th Blow-Up Arthouse International Film Festival in Chicago!
We've been accepted into the 34th Long Island Film Festival taking place this September!
Congratulations to all the cast and crew!
Named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the '20 coolest festivals in the world', we are delighted to be a part of this wonderful event!
Congratulations to ambient music designer Sami El-Enany and Andrea, who did the sound design. You can't go wrong with electrolarynxes and distorted screams.
Wasteworld will be one of only 5 student films from outside the United States to screen at the festival, which makes it even more exciting!
FilmQuest will take place in Sandy, Utah from the 17th-25th of June.
The festival will run from the 14th of April until the 1st of May 2016.
Great work everyone!!
More good news!
In the words of Rutger Hauer, this is 'the festival where good shit happens' and it's extremely exciting to be a part of it!
Thank you to everyone who worked on the film and if anyone is in Texas between the 17th-20th March, please support us!
Hussein: There were quite a few that I really loved. 8 Spiders, To Have and Withhold, The Ashes of Isadora Ivan, Wasteworld, The Actor, Oren and Granny Smith are all short that I loved so much I rewatched them even after they were accepted. I really can wait for everyone to see the amazing shorts we are showing this year.
Thank you Hussein!

The Melbourne Underground Film Festival kicked off on the 11th of September for its 16th year. 'Wasteworld' will be having its WOLRD-PREMIERE at the festival on the 17th of September.
As much as we would LOVE to be there, Australia is a little too far for us, so if anyone else is around Melbourne and wants to support us, please go!! In fact, go regardless! MUFF is a great festival run by deeply passionate individuals with a great love for the underground, the strange and the undiscovered - see for yourself and check out this year's program HERE:
MORE GREAT NEWS!
'Wasteworld' has been selected to play at this year's 'Melbourne Underground Film Festival'! THIS IS SO EXCITING!
MUFF is where the likes of James Wan (Saw) and Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) were launched and is known for its weird, wonderful and sometimes (always?) daring and audacious programming. It's an honour!
Thank you Nicole Magdalena, Tommie Grabiec, Jez Hellion and the whole 'Wasteworld' crew. It wouldn't have happened without you!
'Wasteworld' is in the official selection at the BAFTA-qualifying 'Aesthetica Short Film Festival'! It's a real honour to be a part of this highly competitive, wonderful festival. The festival runs from the 5-8 November in York, UK and you can be sure that we'll be there!
