cuentos de la bruja wins film festival awardsMike T. Lyddon’s latest indie horror film CUENTOS DE LA BRUJA has won two awards for BEST HORROR FILM and BEST B-MOVIE from FLICKS FILM FEST LONDON for the film judging block in the month of April.
Cuentos de la Bruja, which is the spanish language version of WITCH TALES, now moves onto the final judging in those categories at the FLICKS FILM FEST event at the end of June.
“I’m really stoked that Cuentos got the Best B-Movie award,” said Lyddon, “even though it’s more like a Z-budget movie!”
CUENTOS DE LA BRUJA is the spanish language version of the feature length anthology film currently on the festival circuit throughout 2019, while the english version of the film, WITCH TALES, is still being edited.
Short selections from the movie are also being considered for festivals worldwide.

Horror Anthology Cuentos de la Bruja Wins at World Premiere Festival

horror anthology cuentos de la brujaThe latest horror anthology movie from Mike Lyddon and Reel Progress LLC picked up an honorable mention for best feature length film at INFIERNO EN LOS ANDES film festival in Puno, Peru.
Lyddon was on hand for the festivities which included dozens of international short films and several features from around the world.
“It’s the kind of festival where you can talk with the fest directors and everything has a very personal feel to it.  Puno is a great town and an excellent place for a genre event like this.  We has some tough competition from films with budgets far, far greater than ours, so I am pleased that CUENTOS DE LA BRUJA walked away with an honorable mention,” said Lyddon.
