Dear All,

Professional 35mm short film "Life Drawing", which our Croatian-American colleague Arsen Anton Ostojic produced and directed in New York in 2001, has been awarded the Honorable Mention as the Best Dramatic Short Film at the New York International Independent Film and VideoFestival at the end of the last year. This Award has been presented at the special screening in Las Vegas. 

This was the 5th international festival - in the last half a year - at which this film participated, from Croatia, Morocco, Hungary and the States. In February it will be shown at an International Film Festival in Los Angeles and in March at Tiburon Film Festival near San Francisco. 

In addition Arsen Anton Ostojic is preparing a feature film to be shot in Split, Croatia this Spring. He is also teaching at the University of Applied Science and Technology in Salzburg, Austria.

Dragicitatelji CROWNa, 

Sa zadovoljstvom vam zelim reci kako je moj 15-minutni, 35mm kratkometrazni igrani film "Life Drawing" ("Slikanje akta"), koji sam producirao i rezirao u New Yorku proslegodine, nagradjen kao najbolji kratkometrazni dramski igrani film na New York International Independent Film and Video Festivalu. Taj se festival, s vise od nekoliko stotina prikazanih radova, odrzao krajem rujna u New Yorku, a tijekom svecane projekcije proslog tjedna u Las Vegasu, nagrada je i sluzbeno urucena mom glumcu koji je u ime citave ekipe prisustvovao dodjelinagrada. (nazalost ja nisam bio tamo :-)

Takodjer me veseli reci vam da ce film biti prikazan na festivalu u Los Angelesu u veljaci (nadam se dacu tamo i osobno prisustvovati), te je pozvan na Tiburonski filmski festival pored San Francisca u ozujku. Pored toga ITN Distribution iz New Yorka uzela je film za medjunarodnu filmsku distribuciju.

Do sada je, unatoc svom relativno kratkom "zivotu", ovaj film sudjelovao u konkurenciji na 5 filmskih festivala, u Madjarskoj, Hrvatskoj, SAD-u i Maroku. Nadam se da ce i u buducnosti biti prilike za lijepevijesti.

Vas
Arsen Anton Ostojic

Op-ed

ArsenOstojic is one of the most talented young Croatian directors. He mastered a filmlanguage and needs an opportunity to prove it to the rest of the world. Hissensibility and timing is unique and at the same time when you watch his filmsit feels like a classic film.

SupportCroatian talent !
