Jackson, Bankson, Parker nab nods

Local filmmakers take prizes elsewhere

A couple of local lensers have done well for themselves in recent weeks. Greg Jackson and Cassidy Bankson snagged the audience choice award at Calgary's $100 Film Festival for Christmas Compunction, their entry in AFCOOP's annual super-8 holiday challenge. Watch here.

Pardis Parker snagged two awards this week: people's choice at Big Dam in Illinois for his AFF hit Afghan and best comedy at the Griffon International Film Festival in Missouri for Two Men, Two Cows, Two Guns. Check out Afghan here.
