PLASTIC MAN WINS AUDIENCE AWARD AT JFILM PITTSBURG!

PLASTIC MAN wins the Audience Award at JFilm Pittburgh, last month!  Artist  Jerry Barrish attended the screening with Producer, Janis Plotkin. 

Festival Director, Kathryn Spitz Cohan organized a panel with Artists Clayton Merrell, who just completed an installation at the Pittsburgh airport (that is worth the trip there just to see the airport’s floor design)…Also participating was  Carin Mincemoyer, a found object and installation artist who produces the RE:New Festival, a Pittsburgh celebration of creative Reuse, Transformation and Sustainability next September.

Our lively discussion probably contributed to this:

Award winning Director, William Farley commented on the award by saying this:

"What a cherished moment it is for a filmmaker to get a best film award, it validates all of the enormous effort which was expended in making the film, and gifts the makers with knowing they touched others in the telling of their story."
