She Has a Name keeps winning over audiences
The Alberta- based film zeroing in on human trafficking continues to garner awards.
She Has A Name received the Silver Crown Award for Best Drama at a ceremony in Cincinnati, Ohio at the 2017 International Christian Visual Media Association (ICVM) Crown Awards. Each year, the Crown Awards bring together filmmakers and distributors from Canada, the USA, Europe and Asia. Former Drumheller resident Dean Kohut is an executive producer of the film.
“It was an amazing night,” notes the film’s director Matthew Kooman, who was on hand with codirector Daniel Kooman to accept the award. “I’m proud of this film and the team that made it happen.”
The Alberta-made film based on a human trafficking incident in Thailand continues to receive acclaim both in Canada and now internationally.
She Has A Name was also nominated for Best Picture at the Crown Awards, just as it was at the recent Alberta Film and Television Awards in Edmonton where it received at total of five nominations and won the 2017 Rosie for Production Design which was given to Alberta-based designer Shari Aspinall.
The film also received the Audience Choice Award at the Central Alberta Film Festival (CAFF). The film was the closing film at both CAFF, the opening film at Missions Fest Film Fest in Vancouver earlier this year and was an official selection of the Break Forth Canada Film Festival in Edmonton.
The Crown Awards recognize excellence in production and content of films for the “values” audience in the film market. Since 1973, the awards have been presented at the ICVM film market conference each year. The awards were handed out during a ceremony on June 28 in Cincinnati, Ohio
