Katie Garibaldi Wins Award In Best Shorts Film Competition

Katie Garibaldi, San Francisco-based singer/songwriter, along with video director Anna Haas, have won a prestigious Award of Merit from The Best Shorts Film Competition. The award was given for Garibaldi and Haas' exciting music video, "Delightful," which was filmed in Nashville, TN. The "Delightful" music video features an exceptional story line of self-empowerment as well as happiness in independence and includes eye-catching visuals, including Garibaldi roaming a quaint bookstore and dancing in a park at dusk with sparklers. Other notable crew credits include Austin Boylen (Director of Photography), who also shares editing credits with Anna Haas, and Nick Bailey (Camera Assistant). The song "Delightful" is written by Katie Garibaldi from her EP Rooted Clarity.

“I'm basking in honor to receive this amazing award from Best Shorts! I trusted Anna [Haas] with the vision of the video for my song and she completely exceeded my expectations. She has an amazing creative mind, and I really enjoyed working with her and the rest of the team on 'Delightful.' We just had a lot of fun. I'm excited and grateful that our work is being recognized from such an amazing film organization.” -Katie Garibaldi
