'Dear Pillow' does it again

Congratulations, Kudos, and Free Bar Tabs

... go to Dear Pillow's Bryan Poyser (r) and Jacob Vaughan, who just picked up the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Central Standard Film Festival. Hey, Lions Gate: Get off your duff already and distribute this one... Also in line for back slaps is UT Austin grad student John Fiege, whose long-form doc and MFA thesis film, Mississippi Chicken, has won the film category of the New York/Monaco-based Princess Grace Awards. The prestigious honor netted Fiege $10,000 and a presentation from no less than Sharon Stone at the awards ceremony in NYC last week.

Dear Pillow
An 85-minute tribute to erotic confusion, the locally made Dear Pillow is both fascinated by and hostile to the absurdities of our culture's Puritanism and takes obvious joy in poking holes in them
