I'm pleased to annouce that Simply Rob has won a special award at the I've Seen Films International Film Festival in Milan.
This festival run by actor Rutger Hauer is now in it's 5th year and has gone from strength to strength becoming one of the leading festivals for independant film in Italy.
The award was for Best Social Awareness Film and was the only award presented by Rutger himself in front of an audience of over 250 people. The jury included Joan Chen, Robert Rodriguez and Jason Eisener.
We spoke for a while at the after party and he said the decision to award the film was 'unaminous'. Which is nice.
I'd like to thank everyone who has helped support this film over the last year but particularly I'd like to thank Rob for sharing his life and poetry with the world.
Here a few pics from the after party.
