MONTE CARLO, Monaco, Dec. 7, 2015 Kellyann Chippendale's "Getting Meisnered" opened the Angel Film Awards at the Monaco International Film Festival and proved successful once again for her directorial debut.

The film, devoted to humanism and the technique of legendary teacher and director Sanford Meisner, "creates the nearly impossible by virtually capturing light in a bottle", said one of the festival officials of the 13 minute inside glimpse of the acting process.

This time Chippendale and her "Getting Meisnered" were awarded Best Producer for a Short Film, adding to her Best Cinematography award at the San Francisco New Concept Festival and her Best Women Filmmaker accolade at the IndieFEST in La Jolla, California.

"Getting Meisnered" also won the Best Actor Angel Film Award for Chris Liebe, who plays the teacher in the film, and Best Actress for Kat Crawley in San Francisco.

Five awards now adorn the "Getting Meisnered" tribute as it demonstrates how one great teacher can change your whole life; evoking a spirit of connection through dialogue and non judgment.

Festival producers impressed with her direction commissioned her to direct a documentary of the experience from the actor's point of view with the history and uniqueness of the festival's non-violent theme requirement.

"Getting Meisnered" will have an all-media release, plus special distribution to acting schools and Universities, in early 2016.
