West of Redemption Wins Staff Pick Award at Manchester Film Festival

Updated: Jan 6, 2023


We are happy to announce that West of Redemption won the Staff Pick Award at the fourth annual Manchester Film Festival. MANIFF festival reviewers said that it was similar to "the works of Alfred Hitchcock or Alejandro Amenábar's Open Your Eyes." Cornelia Duryée was also recognized in the festival’s "Wonder Woman" lineup, featuring interviews with, and screenings of, the work of several working women in film. MANIFF was the movie’s fifth film festival this year, and West of Redemption’s International premiere.

Cornelia Duryée (director) and Larry Estes (producer) were on hand to accept the award. West of Redemption has received awards for Best Feature (Jefferson State Flixx Fest 2015), Best Dramatic Direction (Eugene International Film Festival 2015), and has been honored as an official selection in numerous festivals.
