The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS -

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
