The 10th Annual Ozark Foothills Film Fest

I attended the Ozarks Foothills Film Fest this past weekend and had to rave about it.

Not only did I get to see some great films (local, short, feature, documentary, animation, you name it!) I also participated in a screenwriting workshop taught by indie writer/director Gordy Hoffman.  Gordy is a smart talented guy (go watch his movie Love Liza and you’ll see what I mean) and I left the workshop ready to attack my script & ready to hammer out the kinks in my 3rd draft.

I talked to A LOT of people about 45 RPM. Everyone is eager to see more and a few more filmmaking hands have offered their skills to the production.  Very encouraging stuff!

Highlight of the festival had to be watching Fritz Lang’s restored classic Metropolis with the world-renowned Alloy Orchestra performing live.  Not only is the film a favorite of mine but the energy and creativity of the live soundtrack was nothing short of transcendent.

Congratulations to Bob & Judy Pest, founders and directors of the Ozark Foothills Film Fest, for hosting the only festival of its kind in Arkansas for 10 years running!
