Short Film “Drained” Wins Its First Film Festival Award

Director Nick Peterson with his award at the Irvine International Film Festival.

Best Experimental Short Film

As we told you previously, BOALT worked with director Nick Peterson and producer Jon Heder to market the short film Drained, which our very own Adam Boalt helped finance. Well, the film is making big waves at film festivals around the world.

It won its first award at this year’s Irvine International Film Festival where it was awarded Best Experimental Film. This is a great honor for the film and the first of what we’re sure will be many awards.
