Los Gatos Filmmakers win "Best of Festival" Awards for "Night of the Chupacabra" at Three Film Festivals in One Month.

Ted Rivera and Thomas Fahrner's, 35mm feature length Sci-Fi/Comedy, Night of the Chupacabra, is creating quite a stir amongst sci-fi fans and film enthusiasts at film festivals locally and internationally. In one month it has been chosen as “Best of Festival” at the North American Science Fiction Film Festival, The International Hispanic Film Festival, and The Berkeley Video & Film Festival.

Night of the Chupacabra, a campy comedy with a twist of Sci-Fi, charms its audience with a witty examination of American pop-culture mixing MTV's real world, Men in Black and Scooby Doo. Night of the Chupacabra was filmed entirely in Silicon Valley with a miniscule budget of $100,000. The price of coffee on larger film sets.

The Chupacabra (goat-sucker) is a cryptozoological animal predominately seen in Mexico and Puerto Rico The creature's name originated with the discovery of some dead goats with puncture wounds in their necks and their blood allegedly drained. Like the Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster it is seen by few but known by millions.

Ted & Thomas the film's creators were schooled as producers for Roger Corman, the legendary King of low-budget horror and sci-fi films, before launching Silicon Valley Film Ventures, which is preparing their current slate of films for sale at the American Film Market in Santa Monica November 2 -9, 2005.
