Fort McCoy has won the audience award at the Tacoma Film Festival yesterday. From the Weekly Volcano:
Kate Connor, director of the feature film Fort McCoy, was the only winning filmmaker in the room full of TFF staff, filmmakers, actors and the public. Connor grabbed the Audience Choice Award for her drama based on a true story about a Wisconsin family that lived next door to a Nazi POW camp. (…)
“We are so honored and touched to win this award,” Connor told the crowd. “We have had so much fun in Tacoma.”
And Eric’s next episode of Glee is probably 3×06, based on this tweet from Lea Michele. Either way, we won’t see it for at least another month. The show is on a three-week break, with no new episodes airing until November 1.
Fort McCoy will be shown at the Tacoma Film Festival on Saturday at 2 pm. More details at GrandCinema.com.
Michael Worth tweeted the other day that the film won an award for best cinematography at the Boston Film Festival last month.

Great news: The Grand Design, a short film Eric directed a few years ago, will finally be available somewhere – on ShortsHD channel on DirecTV (link):
Premiering Sunday, August 21: In The Grand Design a young poet-scientist struggles with his work – and his mother – when he is chosen to author the next spacecraft-carried “message” to alien civilizations. A 16mm short directed by Golden Globe-nominee Eric Stoltz and Neel Keller, written by Susan Miller, and starring Eric Stoltz and Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under).
If you’re in the U.S., you won’t need DirecTV to see it:
ShortsHD is available on DIRECTV (Channel 568), Dish Network (Channel 375), and AT&T U-Verse (Channel 1789). Access via iTunes will follow shortly after each premiere.
Hopefully, someone will share the film with the rest of the world too one of these days.
Included on the schedule is a screening of “Fort McCoy,” selected for the 2011 Choice City Award for Best Feature Film. The film will be shown the evening of Sept. 10.
