Last week, BlueCat founder and judge, Gordy Hoffman, continued the now transcontinental festival tour for his short film, Dog Bowl, which he both wrote and directed. Dog Bowl had its World Premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was honored with its International Premiere at the Raindance International Film Festival in London, England on October 1st.

While across the pond, Gordy made sure to meet with some of the BlueCat Community in the United Kingdom. Below are some of the highlights from Gordy’s trip to London.

Shortly after arriving, Gordy met with a group of students and aspiring screenwriters at Ravensbourne College,  a digital media and design university located in the heart of London.
