Tucson Filmmaker's 'Catnip: Egress to Oblivion' Wins Short Film Audience Award at 2013 Sundance Film Festival

Which means that we all need to go out and get blazed as f—k on some catnip, obviously.

Tucsonan Jason Willis, maker of the retro-educational short film, had this to say on the film's Facebook page:

Whoa! Totally amazing!

The Sundance Film Festival has just announced (via the live streaming awards ceremony) that Catnip: Egress to Oblivion? has won the Short Film Audience Award for 2013! I'm completely dumbstruck and amazed!

Even more awesome: I won this based on the traffic and hits sent to YouTube, so honestly it's totally because of all of you guys — the links that you shared completely made this happen. Fucking madness!

Seriously, great work, folks.
