Filmmaker Raymond Wallace of Manteo accepted the award for Best Horror–Sci-Fi, Narrative Short, for the film Lost in Buffalo City at the 2018 Longleaf Film Festival at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh last month.

“Our whole team is extremely honored to receive this award and to gain recognition for the great indie film work that’s being produced here in the Outer Banks,” Wallace said.

The short thriller was shot entirely on the Outer Banks, at locations in Kill Devil Hills, Manteo, and the actual ruins of the ghost town that serves as the film’s namesake in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge.

The family-friendly short film featuring no gore or bad language, just good old-fashioned scares, is now available for digital rental and purchase at LostinBuffaloCity.com as well as on Amazon.com, and is free to watch for Amazon Prime members.

“It was our goal to make Lost in Buffalo City as accessible to audiences as possible with easy streaming and downloading to any device, so that we can share some of the area’s more obscure history with locals and visitors of all ages,” Wallace said.

Profits from the film will help fund future projects produced and filmed in the Outer Banks. Wallace hopes to continue film production in the area and views it as an opportunity to bring economic diversity to the area’s largely tourism-based economy.

One such project, titled Boy!, is already in post-production and expected to be released later this summer.

Since the film’s premiere in May 2017, Lost in Buffalo City has been featured at more than 15 film festivals, and won Best Horror/Thriller/Sci-Fi from the Asheville Film Festival and the Jerome, Arizona Indie Film and Music Festival.

Other awards include Best Cinematography and Best Actor from the Independent Horror Movie Awards, Best Writers from the Horror In the Hills Film Festival in Gatlinburg, Tenn., and was a winner of the Board of Directors Award from the 2017 North Carolina Film Award.

Lost in Buffalo City will next be screened theatrically at festival appearances in June and July at the inaugural Beyond: The Film Festival in Cary and the Fort Worth, Texas Indie Film Showcase.
