DCIFF Alumni Spotlight – Sean Fallon and Charlotte Barrett Dec 15, 2011

Maria Datch

They have been compared to the Cohen Brothers, and their independent film Virgin Alexander has been lauded as a latter-day Raising Arizona or Bottle Rocket, so it is no surprise that It continues to be a whirlwind year for husband-and-wife filmmaking team Sean Fallon and Charlotte Barrett.  Since the rough cut of Virgin Alexander premiered last year at DCIFF and swept last year’s audience and jury awards for best feature it has been featured at dozens of prestigious festivals across the country, where it has met with full houses and been honored with multiple awards, including its selection as the Opening Night Film at the Orlando Film Festival (where it also won Best Ensemble), Best Feature at the Black Hills Film Festival, and Best Editing at New York’s esteemed Vision Film Festival. The pair, who met while enrolled at NYU’s famous Tisch film school, are currently taking their film on a tour of festivals throughout the midwest. They are presently at the East Lansing Film Festival in Michigan, where they will be on hand to discuss their work with audiences there.
