Fist Of The Dragon Is Nominated For 5 Widescreen Awards!

After winning several awards in the Action On Film Festival in September, Fist of the Dragon has remained in the news on several prominent media outlets. At my recommendation, director Antony Szeto entered the film into the Widescreen Film & Music Festival. Not going to lie, although the Widescreen fest is amazing, I was a bit nervous how Fist Of The Dragon would fare due to the fact it is not an action film festival. Obviously my observations proved completely wrong, and I am absolutely thrilled to officially announce and write about the 5, yes FIVE nominations for Fist Of The Dragon!

Yes action fans you heard me correct! Fist Of The Dragon is up for awards in 5 separate categories! Check out these photos corresponding to each nominee!

Best Director: Antony Szeto

Best Actor: Josh Thompson

Best Actress: Juju Chan

Best Musical Score: Logan So

Best Sound Design: Sarah Liu

These nominations are a monumental achievement for the Roger Corman produced film, and prove that not only is Fist of the Dragon an amazing film, that the people involved have worked tirelessly to promote and follow up on their accomplishments!
