    Looking forward to hearing who won audience choice! I’m not sure how to contact the guys from “The Morgue” but I loved your movie and really enjoyed meeting the producer at the fest(our whole van and our friends in the truck next to us voted for you guys!) Great job Brainwash on having a spectacular festival with some awesome films and awesome filmmakers!!! Can’t wait to come back next year!!

    Hi MarieK6869!
    I was the director for ‘Morgue: a Love Story With Guts’ and my producer actually told me that he met a “ton of people in a large van”… I’m guessing that was you guys? :-)
    Anyway, I’m really glad that you liked our movie and even happier that your group liked enough to vote for us (personally I really liked “Viola Concerto” and the documentary the best). We were so happy to screen our film at Brainwash and are really proud to be a part of such a festival. Thanks Brainwash for an awesome weekend!!!
    Donald McQuade,

    Congrats to everybody! Wish I could have attended. My film was “L’Essere Umano Moderno.”

    Sorry, guys, day jobs and other distractions have prevented us from calling the winner first. (Would it be better just to post it?)
