We’re happy to announce that Don Thompson’s feature-length WWII action-drama ‘Kaltenhouse’ has won two top awards at the Festigious International Film Festival.

The script won both the ‘Best Action Screenplay’ and ‘Screenplay of the Month’ awards at the competitive and highly regarded festival.

The script also won the Best Drama Screenplay at the Los Angeles Film Awards in 2019.

‘Kaltenhouse’ is based on the WWII memoirs of Norman A. Thompson (Don’s father) titled Kaltenhouse Remembered. The book can be found on Amazon here.

nextPix is shopping the project to Los Angeles based production companies and has also been working with European producers to find the best locations for production. If green-lit on schedule, the film should go into production in 2021 and be released in 2022.

Karina Longworth of LA Weekly provides a good overview:

The Cannes Film Festival (which ended its two-week run on Saturday) is nothing if not a study in contradictions. Studio product and tabloid fixtures — RPatz! KStew! “Le gentleman Brad,” as one daily rag heralded the arrival of annual attendee Pitt — butt up on the red carpet against international unknowns, some representing the national cinemas of impoverished and/or war-torn nations. Future Oscar winners are unveiled on the ground floor of the Palais du Cinema, as schlocky genre fare attracts buyers in the massive marketplace a floor below.
