Kirk Sullivan’s short film “The Come Up” was designed to be a crowd-pleaser. And that’s what it did on Saturday June 15th – it pleased the crowd.
The excited patrons of the 5th North Country Shorts showcase expressed their enjoyment by naming “The Come Up” their favorite. Kirk, who was in Columbia working on his first feature film as a director, sent his gratitude via email: “That’s amazing!! Thank you!”
Perhaps it is fateful that the branding of this year’s Film Forum made use of a still from Kirk’s film (see below).
Good luck with your feature debut, Kirk!
