The Sherman Oaks Film Festival is proud to announce a new sponsor: Art Dimensions Online leases and sells fine contemporary art by well-known and emerging artists. Art Dimensions’ artwork has appeared in many feature films and television shows, including Ocean’s Thirteen, How I Met Your Mother, and Two Broke Girls. Art Dimensions works with different time frames and budgets to provide fabulous artwork for film, print, and commercial projects.
The Production Designer of the film that receives the award for Best Art Direction will win a complementary one week rental of an art piece for their next production. The artwork for this prize will be chosen from a selection of pieces provided by Art Dimensions Online.
SOFF has been giving awards to filmmakers for the last few years, but last week we were delighted to be on the other side and win an award.
The Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce held a vote and the winner of the the Golden Oaks Award for “Ground Breaker” was the Sherman Oaks Film Festival! Besides a nifty plaque, we got Certificates of Recognition from the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, California State Assembly, and our congressman from the U.S. House of Representatives.
Festival programmer Jeff Howard went to accept the award.
