Purgatory Comics Wins 3 Awards at LIIFE

Purgatory Comics has won 3 early special awards from the Long Island International Film Expo. The awards will be officially presented during an awards ceremony Sunday July 18, 2010. Angela Benedict won Best Actress for a Feature Film for her portrayal of Cola.

For his role as Berner, Jonathan Zungre got the much deserved Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film.

Fox Vulpini, the incredible acoustic band from Finland, won Best Song for "In the Spin." And seriously, if you haven't downloaded this track yet, you're missing out on some amazing music. Go to their myspace right now! Seriously, bias aside, you regular readers know I love my music, and their sound is so remarkable that they need to get signed in America, like, now.

It's an honor to win these awards from a Long Island festival, as the island has been my home for 30 years now. The recognition humbles me, so here's a sincere thank you to the Long Island Film / TV Foundation.

I'm told we're nominated for at least one more award, but I won't know the category or results until the end of the festival. In the meantime, make sure you get to the 2pm film block on July 9th at the Bellmore theater!
