Film Festival Secrets – Do’s and Don’ts

As we get ready for GloryReelz Christian Film Festival this weekend, I can't help but think back to the GloryReelz festival two years ago.  It was the first festival that we attended and won.

Providence Theatrical Release – In Pictures

Providence movie released in seven cities on Friday, February 12. As part of the release, we had Q and A sessions at each of the theaters. It was a whirlwind of a weekend to say the least. The movie is still showing, but we're finally home and able to catch our breath long enough to…
