Jurors at the Tallgrass Festival in Kansas this year have honored Chris with the Outstanding Male Actor award for his film I Hate The Man In My Basement. The film also won the Stubbornly Independent competition this year.
Chris Marquette turns 33 today. Wishing him a grand birthday!
Chris’s film I Hate The Man In My Basement has been chosen as one of the four films in Tallgrass’s flagship Stubbornly Independent competition. Along with 20 Weeks, Blur Circle, and Bomb City, the film is going to be juried by a panel of industry professionals. The Stubbornly Independent award is given in his honor to an independent film or filmmaker who takes risks and isn’t afraid to tell important stories, and does all of this within the ultra-low budget of $500,000 or less.
The 15th annual Tallgrass Film Festival takes place October 18-22, 2017 in Wichita, Kansas. More information can be found on the Tallgrass website.
