(November 2, 2015 – Hollywood, California) Canadian filmmaker Patricia Chica has won recognition at the RIP Horror Film Festival. Her short, in fact her very short film A Tricky Treat has brought her a Bloody Doll Award for Best Micro Short. The horror short has been doing very well on the film festival circuit. This is the first year the RIP festival celebrates and honors the “Women in Horror” and will continue this tradition for years to come.
“I’m especially proud of this tremendous accolade which honors the contribution of women in genre filmmaking.” said Chica. The “Bloody Dolls” are original hand-crafted creations of designer Deborah MacIntyre-Blount of Deborahz Demented Dollz for the RIP Horror Film Fest. Each doll is numbered and autographed by the artist, and should become a highly sought after collector’s item.
A Tricky Treat, a macabre and irreverent short comedy, was directed by Patricia Chica and written by award-winning storyteller, Kamal John Iskander. The film was produced by Grace Santos, Byron A. Martin, and Patricia Chica. It was executive produced by Tara Kurtz. Co-executive producers are Adonai Interiano and Morris Umali.
Patricia Chica and writer Kamal John Iskander are presently developing a feature film screenplay Montréal Girls, which was a recent finalist at the Oaxaca FilmFest and a Scriptapalooza quarter finalist. They will be pitching new projects at the AmericanFilm Market in Santa Monica this coming week.
