Indiewire said of NIGHT OWL "The Best Independent TV Series at SXSW 2018 — Memo to Distributors". NIGHT OWL won the Alan Sawyer Memorial Award for Excellence in Media John Doyle; The Globe & Mail said of NIGHT OWL: “It has the layered richness of long-form storytelling in its brief, considered response to life. (We’re talking more heft than TikTok and more substantial than whatever Quibi was doing.) Night Owl's a beauty of a little series, an exquisite study of a small slice of life, loneliness and social awkwardness. It’s funny, too. One of those jewels that leaves you smitten with every character.” Nominated for Best New Media Series by NFMLA, official selection SXSW, Christie Pits Film Festival, Toronto Outdoor Picture Show.
