Best Actress Award - ICFF

Updated: May 13, 2019

I am speechless, overwhelmed, humbled, and so honored to have won the award for Best Actress (Short Film) for The Chance of a Lifetime at the International Christian Film & Music Festival!!! With 14 amazing nominees, this was wholly unexpected. To God be all the glory for allowing me to be a part of such impactful, redemptive stories like this short pro-life film!

I’ve wanted to attend ICFF for several years, and this was the first year that all the details lined up perfectly for that to happen. I had a very strong sense that this was the year to go. Clearly God had a plan!


Watch the video below to see my award announcement and brief (47 second) acceptance speech! It was so cool to have my friend and former co-star Ben Davies present the award!
