Our short film ‘Apples’ was awarded the Best Short Film this past October at the Shawna Shea Film Festival in Cambridge, MA.
This festival holds a special place for us, as it is was founded and is organized by Massachusetts Independent Film Festival organizer Skip Shea. The festival is held in honor of his daughter Shawna Shea who died tragically in 1999 at only 16 years old. Because this festival is such a beautiful way to honor his daughters memory, we are honored to be a part of its goal to recognize young women who share her spirit through its scholarship program.
The Shawna Shea Film Festival celebrates independent films and the people who make them. Established in 2012 as a program of the Shawna E. Shea Memorial Foundation Inc., SSFF honors Shawna’s unique independent spirit by bringing audiences films that share the same quality.
