The Head Update (Getting and Giving)

So, as some of you may have read in an earlier post, we were the recipients of an extremely prestigious audience award at Film Pop Montreal. By which I mean, of course, that a lone member of the audience came on stage and presented us with the severed head of a department store mannequin inscribed with the words "Best Film of Film Pop."

A few people have asked how it is possible to win such an award at the opening night gala, when most of the other films haven't even been shown yet.

We don't know. But we couldn't be more honoured.

Still, in the spirit of plurality and pay-it-forwardness and generally not wanting to explain to the border police why we are traveling with a severed head, we have decided that this award is too big to belong to any one film. Instead, we have decided to treat it more like the Stanley Cup of Film Pop, passed from champion to champion and inscribed with an ever-growing list of winning categories.

So, in the category of Best of Schand, the coveted mannequin head goes to Automatic Vaudeville Studios for their amazing film/performance, Schandfilm Dreis. I don't even know where to begin to talk about this... film? Event? Harbinger? But I will say this: I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. And that was just the Q&A.

To whom will the auto-vaudvillians give head? Stay tuned to their website for details...
