The film has had success on the festival circuit, winning awards at several events such as Screamfest, FilmQuest, and San Jose International Short Film Festival. Also, Progeny is set to conclude its festival run this fall, with several upcoming events including Fantasia International Film Festival, Horrible Imaginings, Aesthetica Short Film Festival, and others.
