MAY 7th, 2016: VM Productions is pleased to announce that Notes from the New World has been awarded the Bronze awards by the prestigious Los Angeles Neo Noir Novel, Film & Script Festival. The festival committee received close to 1,000 submissions, and close to 650 were awarded with honorable mentions. Our projects ranked in the top 150 submissions. All submissions were screened solely for industry professionals and a team of anonymous judges. Notes from the New World was also screened at the LA Neo Noir Nooner event, a private event for Grand Jury prize winners only, on May 28 in LA. The event has been hailed by L.A. Weekly as the film festival with "the world's sexiest, darkest, crime films." Listen to our Director of Communications Stacey Osborne, who called in to the L.A.
