During the New Hope Film Festival’s Award Ceremony last month, Guy Quigley had the honor of accepting the Jury Award for Best Supernatural Thriller of “Apparition,” a feature film shot and produced by his Doylestown-based media company, Thundersmoke Media. The film was also nominated for the festival’s Danny Award (Best Picture) and for Best Director.
“Apparition,” which has won many awards at film festivals around the world, was one of 89 films from 11 countries at New Hope’s Seventh Annual Film Festival. It was shown to a captivated audience on July 23rd at The New Hope Arts Center during the festival.
“Apparition” has many local ties to this area. Not only was Guy the film’s executive producer, but his son, Jody Quigley, a Doylestown native and a multi-award winning actor, had the lead role.
“Many area residents will recognize The Knight House, a restaurant located in historic Doylestown where this film’s engagement party scene was shot,” said Guy. “We also shot many exterior shots along the streets of Doylestown, in addition to using a New Britain property for several scenes.”
