A big congratulations to April Phillips (pictured) and the team who worked on The Last Man On Earth, a finalist at the Flickers Rhode Island International Film Festival. The film has also just picked up six awards at the Independent Shorts Awards, including gold in the Best Women Short and Best Supporting Actor categories, and Silver in the Best director (Female) and Best Sci-Fi categories. We especially loved the acknowledgement of Best Supporting Actor for Duncan Armstrong (below) an actor and performer shattering myths about the capabilities of people with Down Syndrome. Set in a post apocalyptic world, The Last Man On Earth has themes about the value of people with disabilities and society's negative stereotypes towards them.
