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.

Here is another photo from the set of Glee 3.01, nabbed from Facebook:
Sparks is getting re-released in a new anthology, “HitRECord Recollection, Volume 1.”
The handsome, 8 ¼-by-8¼-inch cloth-bound book — from New Video Group — contains two discs of digital entertainment, including 36 collaboratively made short-form live-action and animated films, music videos and “tiny stories.” They’ve been submitted by members of the artistic community, which claims 40,000-plus contributors.
Artistically, they run the gamut from highly entertaining and innovative, to slight and overly precious. The sketches and drawings can be wildly imaginative and intricately rendered, or delightfully childlike and amusing. In any case, nothing lasts long enough to overstay its welcome. By far, the longest piece, “Sparks,” clocks in at 23 minutes, but the presence of sexy Carla Gugino, Xander Berkely and ever-ready Eric Stoltz makes it seem shorter. As JOE, Gordon-Levitt adapted the screenplay from a short story by Elmore Leonard and directed it. — Movie City News
And Eric wasn’t at the Boston Film Festival, but Kate Connor and Andy Hirsch were. Production Live Online has posted an interview with them. Not the best audio ever, but I don’t think we’ve seen the poster yet:
