Andrew Buckner Wins Best Dramatic 180 at Avalonia Festival V With “The Man Who Fears the Rain (2020)”

By Andrew Buckner

AWordofDreams.com owner and sole writer, Andrew Buckner, has received his first laurel for moviemaking yesterday. He won Best Dramatic 180 at Avalonia Festival V for a his short film “The Man Who Fears the Rain” (2020). The two-minute and fourteen-second project concerns a man who attempts to find the deeper meaning in the apprehension stated in the title of the project. Filmed completely for free and almost entirely in his home and backyard, the introspective work was both cathartic and emotionally satisfying for the Ohio resident to create.

This is the second film festival in which Buckner’s work has been showcased. The initial gala occurred last Saturday, October 24th, 2020 when his fake B-movie trailer entitled “Mower Vengeance: From Grass to Flesh (2020)” was a part of the B-block of the Weird Local Virtual Film Festival #3.
