Director, Robert Steven Williams, receives the award from the Mystic Film Festival for Best New England film for 2020.

“In a difficult year for so many, it was an honor to receive this award from the Mystic Film Festival. The team there braved the virus and hosted an actual event with live screenings carefully structured to keep everyone safe.”

Williams adds, “The film resonates with many at a time when folks need a break from politics and the pandemic. Gatsby in Connecticut is a seventy-minute journey back in time to 1920, when Scott and Zelda celebrated their honeymoon and the seeds of The Great Gatsby were sown.”
