“POSTAL” Movie Awarded Best of Show at Hoboken International Film Festival

Tucson, AZ: Hoboken, NJ, long known primarily as the birthplace of Francis Sinatra, has added considerable cinematic cache to its resume with the annual growth of its Hoboken International Film Festival where this year’s surprise success was “Postal,” a zany, scattershot comedy based on the eponymous, long-running video game franchise from Running With Scissors. Nominated in five categories, “Postal” copped the Best Director nod for independent filmmaker Uwe Boll and then walked off with the coveted Best of Festival Award, the latter prize given to the entry determined by the audience as its favorite.

“When the fans speak, WE WIN,” proclaimed RWS honcho and the movie’s Executive Producer, Vince Desi. “We know this from our experience in the game industry and now the film business just confirms it. The continued success of the POSTAL franchise in all its forms is proof that democracy works; you cannot stop what’s in the hearts of the people. Freedom will always triumph over tyranny.”

“Postal” was also nominated for several other awards, including Best Editing, Best Supporting Actor (Dave Foley) and Best Script. The festival, which ran from May 31 through June 4, with a gala Awards Ceremony on June 5th, also honored veteran actor Billy Dee Williams, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Running With Scissors, meanwhile, is hard at work on POSTAL III, which is headed to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC/Mac in 2009.
