IndieFEST Award of Merit

Congratulations to filmmaker Misha Zubarev on receiving an AWARD OF MERIT from IndieFEST for his short film Cake: A Love Story!  My husband and I are very happy about this award because the movie is based on It Had To Be Us, an award-winning romantic memoir we co-wrote under the pen names of Harry & Elizabeth Lawrence.

IndieFEST discovers and honors the achievements of filmmakers who produce high quality films and new media. The AWARD OF MERIT honors “notable artistic and technical productions.”

A major goal of this festival involves promoting filmmakers of cinematic gems and unique voices to a worldwide audience.

We are proud of Misha Zubarev and his assistant V. Ulea for their sensitive adaptation of our story about how true love can stand the test of time. And we applaud the cast (Debra Lord Cooke, Richard Vernon, Nancy Lombardo, George Bettinger) and entire crew for their impressive work on this beautiful film.

  • BETTY JO & LARRY ... Congratulations to Misha on his award, and also I'm sure he will also congratulation you both on planting the 'seed' that sprouted into the movie "Cake, A Love Story". I feel everyone will get a fantastic thrill if they first read the 'seed': "It Had to Be Us!" (the format of IHTBU is delightful ... esp. pg 28 that convinces Harry that: "she needs someone to look after her.")
