James Pratt Wins Best Actor at the Beyond Hollywood International Film Festival

The Beyond Hollywood International Film Festival (BHIFF) unveiled its winners at the Fine Arts Theatre in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles on Saturday with James Pratt winning Best Actor for his role in the new feature film Malibu Crush, Ava Cantrell winning Best Actress for her performance in Twenty-Two, and Michael Schilf winning Best Director for The Fixer.

The star-studded festival saw a record number of entries from around the world, with finalists announced on 18 May 2022 before the official start of the ten-day festival.

Mr Pratt’s lead role of Michael Chase in Malibu Crush has garnered worldwide attention ahead of its release in five weeks. The indie comedy secured U.S. European and Canadian distribution through Cardinal XD Media, and Bounty Films in Australia and New Zealand.

“It was a real pleasure to be part of the festival and among the winners,” Pratt said. 

“Michael Chase was a fun role to play. He pretends to be a highly acclaimed film student director to impress an ex-girlfriend, however, she is very unimpressed by him and his directing. Malibu Crush featured so many talented people.”

Another big winner of the night was Bonnie McKee for Best Short Film, Best Composer, and Best First Time Filmmaker. She wrote, directed, and starred in April Kills the Vibe which tells the story of April, who wakes up after a rowdy New Year’s Eve with a lot more than just a hangover, she calls her partner in crime, Lola, to try to fill in the blanks. But the truth is uglier than April bargained for, and she is forced to confront her demons. Bonnie revealed on stage she also edited the film.
