Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times now online
My short film Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times reached over 60 film festivals around the world (mainly in 2018) and won nearly a third of those for best short film - either voted for by a jury or by the audience. See the full list of festivals at the bottom of this post.
Winning the audience award for the best short at Dinard in France was a highlight. Dinard is a special place. It's a unique festival in that it showcases only British films but the French love it and the attendance and interest is significant. It's also a beautiful tourist destination with a gorgeous coastline. In the run up to a toxic Brexit, the timing of this film was good.
It's IMDB listing is here for the details of the cast and crew.
It has touched so many people and is continuing to do so. I shared it on the Papadopoulos & Sons Facebook page and it was re-shared 100s of times.

Constantine, my 10 year old son, asked to see these Facebook comments. In his words and to his surprise, he noted the absence of negative comments. "There's no hate here", he noted.
