Members of Picnicface also won three film awards for Rollertown in the categories of Best Film, Best Writing - Film, and Best Direction - Film. Not a bad Sunday night for sure.

The TV version of Picnicface will not see a second season as it was cancelled. However, with all this attention, will that be changed?
