Victory Film Nominated For Two Further Awards

July 3, 2013

Afflare Films and TenTen Publications announced that Lucinda Spurling’s film, ‘In the Hour of Victory’ has been nominated for two further awards at the upcoming Southampton International Film Festival to be held in Southampton, UK between October 3rd and 6th 2013.

The film will make its UK premiere screening at the festival and has been nominated for: Best Documentary Feature and, Achievement in Directing.

The film, which is based on the book of the same name by Jonathan Smith, tells the story of Major Toby Smith’s four year period stationed in Europe during World War II. More than 300 cards and letters that Major Smith wrote home to his wife tell the heart-wrenching story of a soldier’s devotion to duty and to family.

The nominations for these two further awards comes shortly after the film won the prestigious Platinum Remi Award – first place in the ‘Feature Documentaries’ category at the just completed Worldfest Houston International Film Festival in Houston, Texas and the signing of a distribution agreement with the Beverly Hills, California-based, Ostrow and Company less than two weeks ago.

In the Hour of Victory was co-directed by Bermudian Andrew Kirkpatrick and stars Bermudians Ben Beasley as Major Toby Smith and Catherine Hay as his wife, Faith. Steve Gallant, a former Bermudian resident, composed the musical score for the film.
