BUFFALO, N.Y. - Oct. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival will honor director Albert Pyun with its Indie Genre Spirit Award in the fest’s awards presentation at the Dipson Amherst Theatre on Sunday, November 10th, midway through the seven day event. The festival will also screen Pyun’s latest film, Road to Hell, an homage to Walter Hill’s Streets of Fire, on Friday, November 8th at 7:00 pm. Michael Pare reprises his role as ex-soldier Tom Cody in this new rock ‘n roll fable.

“We’re honoring Albert because he represents what this award stands for,” says festival co-chair Gregory Lamberson. “He’s been a tireless for in independent cinema since the 1980s, with films like Radioactive Dreams, Cyborg and Captain America. No matter what studio interference and budgetary challenges he’s faced, he’s continued to build a body of work in multiple genres. To many people these are just B movies, but to him, they’re his art. While others have talked about making movies and chased the perfect deal, he’s done what he loves.”

Pyun, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, is unable to attend the festival due to worsening health. His partner, Cynthia Curnan, is spearheading an IndieGoGo campaign to finance a screening of Road to Hell in Los Angeles; fans should visit
