I am confident in saying that we have met our goals this year, along with acquiring distribution for two features we managed to be awarded with over 150 festival wins this year. We also started a new feature wrapped two others.
Big things happening with 5 features - Wow.
It has always been my goal to see Welling FIlms be a better caretaker of our Executive Producers and their companies that we are grateful to serve. We are so thankful to be given a chance to do what we love to do - make great cinema because of them. In working towards this goal, it always starts with cast and crew that have been consistently making magic with Welling Films for 15 years plus. I can say that 2022 has turned out better than I expected.
