Q & A Dominates the Film Festival Awards

Well, Q & A: The Perception of Dawn ended up dominating The Brick Theater’s Film Festival Closing Night Awards Ceremony, garnering four very tongue-in-cheek prizes:

  • Best Performance by a Theater Critic – yours truly (see above photo for evidence of my now-infamous cell phone acceptance speech)
  • Crappiest Indie Film Waiting to Happen (for The Perception of Dawn, the actual film within the play)
  • Best Alcoholic Newcomer – Rebecca Comtois (for teaching The Brick crowd a thing or two about how to drink)
  • Best Jew – Ken Simon (for being Jewish)

There are a host of awe-inspiring photos of the awards ceremony over at The Brick’s official blog, so click on over there and take a gander at all the fun you missed.

Speaking of Q & A, we got extended! Damn right, Daphne – you’ve got two more chances to see the award-winning show that features the Best Performance by a Theater Critic, the Best Alcoholic Newcomer, the Best Jew, and the Crappiest Indie Film Waiting to Happen. Here are the details…

The Fifth Wall presents
Written by Danny Bowes
Directed by Gyda Arber
Starring Gyda Arber, Danny Bowes, Rebecca Comtois, Jorge Cordova, Michael Criscuolo, and Ken Simon

A post-screening question-and-answer session for the independent film The Perception of Dawn rapidly devolves into a grudge match between the writer, director, producer, and actors. Will anyone make it out unscathed? The audience determines how it all goes down, as they ask the questions in the question-and-answer session. The hilarious and engaging new comedy from the creators of Suspicious Package and This is the New American Theater, presents a scathing critique of Hollywood politics.
