I've been fortunate enough to have some of my work recognized by the commercial and creative community through award wins, nominations and attention from the press. In regard to the press, like most artists I know, I've been subjected to both praise and censure. This highlight section lists some awards that projects under my creative care earned, shares some press quotes that I feel capture the positive and negative reactions to my work and, adds a few details that I think help tell the stories of some of these works. 

The Mad (writer/director)
(Feature, 2007)
  • Action-comedy horror starring Billy Zane.

  • Opening night Gala
    (Canadian Film Festival,
    Toronto 2007).

  • Fear Festival (Italy), Special Presentation.

  • Cover feature - GoreZone magazine
    (U.K.’s premiere horror publication).

Love is Work (writer/director)
(Feature, 2005)
  • Winner - People’s Choice Award for Best Feature Film (Whistler 2005).

  • Winner - Special Jury Prize for Performance (Canadian Film Festival, Toronto 2006)

  • Inaugural film for the NFB and Canadian Academy of Cinema and Television’s Critic’s Choice
    screening series hosted by Richard Crouse.

  • Presented by multi-Oscar winner Paul Haggis at 
    U.S. film premiere.
     

Good Press:
The Globe and Mail said  "the movie's most revealing moments achieve some of the raw power you find in John Cassavetes's like-minded expeditions into the darker recesses of the
human heart."

The National Post said the film 'might just be Canada's best counterpart to Annie Hall.'
 
Bad Press:
The Province gave the film a 'C+' and Calgary's ffwd Weekly said, "'Love is Work' is a unique and sometimes nauseating experience."
 
Jack & Jill (writer/director)
(Feature, 1999)
  • Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival.

  • Produced by Simone Urdl with Executive Producer
    Atom Egoyan.

  • Genie nominations for Best Directorial Debut and Best Supporting Actress (Kathryn Zenna).

Good Press:
Variety said "Kalangis who wrote, directed and stars in the pic has comic talent that could blossom in bigger budget surroundings." and film "had… sympathetic performances with Kalangis most memorable as the loutish but charismatic Jack."
National Post said,"Where Jack and Jill beats a Woody Allen picture is with the ease of talk",.. "believable wit from people who look real"...  "great cinema."
Bad Press:
The Toronto Star said, "Kalangis could be faulted for a lot of things…(and)… neither the timing or charm to make Jack seem anything more that an insufferable idiot, dragging down what would otherwise be a lightweight romantic comedy."

Now Magazine thought i was... "better off going work at McDonald's" than make films.

Planet of the Doctor (director)
(Web Documentary, 2005)

  • Six-part exclusive online documentary about TV's DOCTOR WHO, The Planet of the Doctor for CBC.

  • 2 million + viewers in first year.
