14 fest awards for Bacherloman

Grand Slam winner Schultze Gets the Blues rides away with Stockholm

The phrase "Independent
Movie" has been abused over the last

five years. "Indies" now have bankable stars, studio

financing and distribution deals. Where's the real

independent projects with no names, low budget and people

working for the love of filmmaking - not the money?

is just such an independent film, directed by

Sundance alumni John Putch (Valeria Flake), and made by a

tiny band of filmmakers who all shared the same opinion:

They thought the script was the star.It's a broad, hilarious

comedy in which a successful bachelor admired by his peers,

falls head over heels in love for the girl next door.

"The movies that
I make, including 'Bachelorman', I consider

to be the genuine definition of Independent cinema in

America today. With a shoestring budget and years of toil

already logged, the experience automatically becomes

communal and full of good-hearted support by all who decide

to become involved. This was the case with 'Bachelorman';"

states Putch.

Now with 14 festival awards
in just seven months,

BachelorMan is proving a hit with audiences all over the

world, including sold-out screenings at the prestigious

Melbourne (AUS) International and Providence (Rhode Island)

Film Festivals.

Earlier this year, BachelorMan
won Best Screenplay honors at

the San Diego Film Festival and the Audience Award for Best

Feature at LA's "Dances With Films" Festival - one of the

countries most respected Independent Film events.

And most recently, the
jury prizes for Best Feature at both

the Annapolis and Valley (LA) Film Festivals were awarded to

the romantic comedy, bringing it's total of 2003 awards to


was written by the team of Rodney Lee Conover,

Jeffrey C. Hause & David Hines ("Once Bitten"). The script

was loosley based on characters from Conover's stand-up

comedy routine.
