Steph Carse’s "Amazing Grace" has been selected as a Remi Award winner and will be honored with screenings during the 52nd Annual WorldFest-Houston. Unique in the film festival world, at WorldFest, only Remi Winners are screened, not just nominees.
WorldFest is currently in full swing, running from April 5-14, 2019.
More than 1,500 Short Film category entries were received for WorldFest-Houston. Only about 15% are honored by winning a Remi Award, and only 1% of Short Film entries are selected for screening.
Short Film Programmer Chandni Soti congratulated Carse saying, “You have now joined the ranks of Spielberg, Coppola, Lucas, Ang Lee, the Coen Brothers, David Lynch, Randal Kleiser, John Lee Hancock and hundreds of others as WorldFest-Houston Remi Award Winners, so this is an exceptional accomplishment. My sincere congratulations for a job very well done!”
