DENIA filmmaker Albert Ivars won ‘Best Comedy Award’ at the Alternative Film Festival (AltFF) in Toronto, Canada recently.
The AltFF is a quarterly event that is committed to bringing filmmakers of all levels – even beginners – a chance at taking home a festival award.
Ivars and his film ‘100% puroalgodon’ (100% pure cotton) were also nominated for the ‘Best Screenplay’ and ‘Best Cinematography’ awards.
The film – crowdfunded at a cost of €9,000 – was shot across four Valencian locations, including Pedreguer and pokes fun at people who pretend to be something they are not, with happily married couple Aritz and Sonia as the protagonists of the story.
It has been a successful year for Ivars who was also finalist at the EURASIA International – Monthly Film Festival and received an Honorary Mention at the Festival Internacional de Cine de Queretaro.
