“Thank You For Your Call” Wins Jury Award for Best Documentary Short Film

Outfest 2011 came to an end this weekend, and Thank You For Your Call was fortunate enough to have won the jury award for outstanding documentary short film.  This is my first award of any kind for my photography and documentary work, so it’s a great feeling to know that the film has impacted some people.  I’m also proud to have helped bring some much needed to attention to Bill’s story.  He’s a great man and a good friend and I’m happy to have met him.

From indiewire.com:

For its moving examination of one man’s emotional journey through a complex and systematic issue of inequity which currently and will continue to affect many of us, we award the Outfest 2011 Grand Jury Award for Outstanding Documentary Short Film to “Thank You for Your Call,” directed by Shawn Nee.

It’s been a year since the film was made, and unfortunately people are still treated unfairly in this country and the Social Security Administration continues to discriminate against the LGBT community.  So it’s important that people be persistent and continue fighting for what they believe in until everyone is treated equally.

To see what other films won at the festival go here.

    Do they want to enhance their customer service operations.
    If you’re keeping a blog for social media purposes, you have
    to make sure that it’s kept as active as
    possible. Now that you have a ballpark figure for how much
    your networking campaign has cost you for just one month of starting and maintaining the campaign for five networks,
    how much have you made from those networks. Top experts also feel that search engines give more importance to sites with frequently updated
    content as the info must be time relevant. * If you don’t have the definitive answer immediately, respond anyway that you’re
    aware of their comment and you’re checking the situation to get back to
    them ASAP. Imagine yourself being the most searched artist online.
    Some of these tips are free, but you may have to pay small fees for other aspects of your plan. Suppose, if
    the ads stays in the last place means probably your product will not
    reach majority of the person. Produce new blog entries
    often and at regular intervals. You will also establish yourself as
    a real person and not just a business entity.
