Local Recognition for Wheels of Death

Wheels of Death has gotten a few mentions in the Irish media of late.

Donald Clarke writes for the Irish Times

Bloodthirsty, viscerachewing congratulations go out to Dubliners Edward and Rob Kennedy, whose Wheels of Death horror short recently won the Killer Shorts Competition at the Monster Mania Convention in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The flick thus becomes the first film ever to earn an advance slot in the line-up for the 2009 New York City Horror Film Festival.

And even the Irish Film and Television Network has found us newsworthy…

‘Wheels of Death’, the latest short film from Dublin based independent film company First Quarter Films (founded by Rob & Edward Kennedy, and Andrew Mahon), has won the first ever Killer Shorts Competition at the Monster Mania Convention held in Cherry Hill, New Jersey on August 23rd. An audience vote on a dozen entries resulted in ‘Wheels of Death’, by Irish directors Edward & Rob Kennedy, walking away with the prize.

Nothing major perhaps, but it has made our mothers proud.

Wheels of Death wins Kill Shorts Sudden Death Competition at Monster Mania Con ’09

Great news. Wheels of Death has won the Killer Shorts Sudden Death Competition at Monster Mania Con in New Jersey. The audience voted our film their favourite which means Wheels of Death will be screening again in November at the NYC Horror Film Festival. Once we know exactly when Wheels is playing we’ll let you know.

The NYC Horror Film Festival 2009 (www.nychorrorfest.com), in conjunction with Monster Mania Con (www.monstermania.net), & sponsored by FEARSmag.com, is pleased to announce the winner of the first ever KILLER SHORTS SUDDEN DEATH COMPETITION, held August 23, 2009, at the Monster Mania Convention in Cherry Hill, NJ. An impressive audience turned up to vote on a dozen entries and the audience favorite was WHEELS OF DEATH by directors Edward & Rob Kennedy, from Dublin, Ireland. As a result, WHEELS OF DEATH is the first film ever to earn an advance slot in the program for the 2009 NYC Horror Film Festival.

And we even found our way onto Fangoria.com (so that’s one lifelong goal accomplished)…

A large audience voted WHEELS OF DEATH into the winner’s circle, giving it an advance slot at this year’s NYC Horror Film Festival, which takes place November 18-22 at the Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick Street).

A huge thanks to everyone who voted and rest assured you’ll be seeing us all at the NYC Horror Film Festival come November.
