Thank you for the nomination as best actress in a short. I will speak well of your festival around me and encourage my colleagues and my friends to participate."
Jean-Walter Muller, Producer of 'Une Tache Rebelle'.
"Merci a vous ! J'espere que cette premiere edition de votre festival est un succes. Nous sommes tres heureux d'y avoir participe.

"So I just got back from the Strasbourg International Film Festival. Birthday Girl was up for best short screenplay! We didn't win but that's alright, the nomination was an honour in and of itself.
I had a great time at the fest. I was asked to speak on a panel called Filmmaking as Art. I was introduced as having the most 'commercial' film amongst the filmmakers. There was lots of debating but I think in the end we all agreed that we fundamentally believe in a similar principle (despite the differences in our work and filmmaking backgrounds); what differentiates art vs. commerce is not necessarily the amount of money that goes into making something but the intent of those in charge."
Erin Laing, Director of short film 'Birthday Girl'
