Official Selection of the Atlanta Film Festival

With much excitement, we would like to announce that
45RPM will be screening as part of the 38th annual Atlanta Film Festival!

The Atlanta Film Festival is one of the largest and longest-running festivals in the country with audiences of over 25,000 experiencing hundreds of new independent, international, animated, documentary, and short films, selected from 3000+ submissions from all over the world.

And our film is included this year!

Throughout the submission process the Atlanta Film Festival has been so open and encouraging to filmmakers applying to the fest. This is completely unheard of from a festival and it was eye-opening to see the resources and feedback this organization offered up to filmmakers everywhere.

We are convinced that if the Atlanta Film Festival can make what is typically a grueling process informative and heartening, then the actual festival is going to be mind-blowing!

Check out the line-up so far and you’ll see a beautiful face of inspiring indie filmmaking.

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!
