Producer Dave Bresnahan has announced that his film ‘Grandpa’s Crazy?’ has won more film festival awards, and is being marketed at the current Cannes Marché du Film.

TOOELE, UTAH – Dave Bresnahan of Faranabrack, has announced two additional awards from recent film festivals and the marketing of the film he wrote and produced, “Grandpa’s Crazy?” at the Cannes Marché du Film held during the Festival de Cannes 2022.

“We were honored to receive a nomination for Best Feature Film and a win for Best Screenplay at the recent Vanilla Palms Film Festival as well as a Best Producer Award from the Hollywood Gold Film Festival,” said Bresnahan. The film has now won over 20 awards and has five nominations from various international film festivals, according to IMDb. 

“The film was a genuine team effort from all our cast and crew. Many of the actors, including some of the kids, the director, won awards as well as an award for the theme song “Free Falling” by Eric Osmond who also played a role in the film and won an award for that as well. We were blessed by lots of talented people,” said Bresnahan.

In the story written by Bresnahan and directed by Danor Gerald, lonely, widowed Gramps (Walter Platz) decides to pretend to get lost to get attention from his son Rob (Eric Osmond). His teenage skateboarding friends come to his aid when Gramp’s family try to have him declared incompetent.

“The film deals with common social issues without being preachy, in an entertaining way. We see how the characters deal with elderly loneliness, physical child abuse, suicidal thoughts, depression, in a story filled with laughter, tears, and the excitement of skateboarding,” explained Bresnahan.

“Grandpa’s Crazy?” is represented by KOAN Inc. founded in 1990, KOAN is one of the longest running worldwide sales, film finance, and production companies in the entertainment industry. “I selected Gil Aglaure of Koan because of Koan’s diverse catalogue of award-winning action, romance, thrillers, family, and faith-based films, as well as exceptional documentaries, offering broad appeal to a worldwide audience, and decades of experience and contacts in the industry,” said Bresnahan.
