The Gate Gets 5 Widescreen Festival Nominations!

Special congratulations go out to Kellie Madison and her entire team from The Gate. On the heals of the announcements for the 5 awards for Fist of the Dragon comes the official announcement that The Gate has also been nominated to 5 awards at the Widescreen Film & Music Video Festival in Miami!

That is right action fans, like I stated, in prior posts, though the Widescreen Festival is not an action genre only fest, it is open to nominating action films, and showcases worldwide action talent. The list of awards for The Gate is quite impressive:

1) BEST DIRECTOR (Kellie Madison)



4) BEST ACTRESS (Amy Johnston)


The Gate will screen at The AMC 24 theaters in Aventura on Saturday February 18th 2017.
