Congratulations to Echonetdaily video correspondent, Sharon Shostak (pictured), who has been honoured at the Columbia Gorge International Film Festival with an award for excellence in originality for her film Tish Ho.

‘The Triangle Award’, as it is known, was first presented when a film at an earlier festival, which didn’t fit any genres, was lauded as intelligently crafted, well made and provoking many levels of interpretation.

Sharon emailed Echonetdaily the great news from the festival, which takes place annually in Vancouver, Washington.

Tish Ho, premiered at the Byron Film Festival earlier this year and has subsequently screened to packed houses across the region. Sharon said she is looking forward to organising some encore performances when she returns.
