Hey, guys. Remember that item we posted right before Halloween featuring a few videos shot by Tucsonan Jason Willis? And remember that one video that was a brilliant parody of "classroom drug educational film(s)" featuring kitties strung out on catnip? You know, the one that was selected to screen at last month's American Film Institute's AFI Fest, in Los Angeles?
Well, we just got word via a Facebook post that the video (and, by extension, Willis) has just received its biggest honor yet: Catnip: Egress to Oblivion? has been selected to screen at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Here's what Willis posted on his Facebook page:
Okay everyone — I'm not exactly sure how to process this news yet so I'm just going to post it.
My short film Catnip: Egress to Oblivion? has been named as an official selection at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
No, honestly. It's playing at the Sundance Film Festival. For real.
In January I'm going to travel to Utah, and go to the Sundance Film Festival where my film Catnip: Egress to Oblivion? will play.
At the Sundance Film Festival.
