This weekend was filled with good vibes!
Not only did we open theatrically across three countries, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland, we were playing in theaters or festivals in at least five continents. And, to cap it off, the incredible and incredibly humble, Benh Zeitlin was awarded The Sutherland / Best First Feature at the BFI London Film Festival and the New Horizon / Special Jury Award at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
Back in the States on Monday, Quvenzhané Wallis will receive the New Hollywood Award at the Hollywood Film Awards, which honors the year's best new talent. She'll be joined by Benh Zeitlin, Dwight Henry and Lucy Alibar on the red carpet.
We try not to make a big deal about awards and honors but like a proud mom/pop, we can't help but be thrilled for everyone involved in the journey that is Beasts of the Southern Wild.
