Legendary Brazilian filmmaker Jose Mojica Marins - aka COFFIN JOE - was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award on Saturday July 25th, at the Canadian Premiere of his latest film, EMBODIMENT OF EVIL, co-written by festival alumnus Dennison Ramalho (LOVE FOR MOTHER ONLY).

The award was a gold-plated Lovecraftian statue made by Montreal artist Rick Trembles, who also reviewed EMBODIMENT OF EVIL in comic form this week in The Montreal Mirror as part of his weekly Motion Picture Purgatory column (see the comic HERE). (Rick also recently released Volume 2 of the Motion Picture Purgatory collection, which you can pick up at the FAB Press table in the lobby.)

See below for fantastic photos and video capsule of the Q&A and award presentation - which include Mojica arriving in a coffin!
