Brock actress scores top honour at Spanish international film festival

Published on October 05 2012


"It was a callback Katie Coseni won’t soon forget.

The second-year dramatic arts student had just returned from six days at the San Sebastián International Film Festival in Spain, where the film in which she plays one of the lead roles, Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang, was given the red carpet treatment.

It was her second stop on the international film festival circuit, after the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September.

She was alone in her room when she got the call.

“I looked at the number and it was from France,” says Coseni. “I was like that’s really weird, why is someone from France calling me?”

It was one of the producers from the film on the other end of the line notifying her that the festival wanted her to come back so that she could accept her award.

“I was like, what award?” Coseni remembers.

The award in question was the Silver Shell for Best Actress."
