I love romance movies, chick flicks, and sappy dramas. But I realize that those are not first choice on my husband’s watch list. He wants something with a little action, or comedy, or cool cars. Chances are, if you’re married, you’ve run into the same dilemma. So I’ve put together a list of five movies that offer entertainment for both men and women.
They say March comes in like a lion, and that is certainly true for us this year!
The month kicked off with an interview on the Michael DelGiorno show. Michael is a popular radio host and will be making his film debut as the Military Chaplain in Summer of ’67. If you missed the interview, you can listen online at www.997wtn.com/michael-delgiorno and click on 3/2/17 10:00 hour.
After each movie I always say that’s it. No more movies. And I mean it. I honestly thought Providence was our last movie. It screened in AMC theaters in L.A., Times Square, and my hometown of Destin, Florida. It exceeded our grandest expectations with countless awards and positive reviews. How could we possibly top that? Why even try?
I love hearing stories of how individuals got started in the film industry. Mark Mitchell has one of the most interesting stories, beginning his filmmaking journey working on Flywheel as a young teen. He was a part of our Providence crew, and I’m looking forward to seeing his work on his latest film, Remember the Goal, which releases to theaters next weekend.
This past weekend we traveled across five states to attend The Narrow Way Film Festival in Philadelphia. Last year we were honored to have The Good Book win Staff Choice, and this year we wanted to show our appreciation and support by attending the festival. Venitia Baldwin and her husband Grant work so hard to provide an uplifting experience for filmmakers and the Philadelphia community, and I was honored to be a part of this year’s festival, teaching a workshop and screening Providence.
Saturday, June 25, 2016 will go down as a night where God surprised us in the most unexpected way possible. We entered PROVIDENCE in the ICVM Crown Awards competition with much trepidation. We knew that ICVM was the industry organization and that the previous winners were top of the line films. But we took a chance and submitted.
Our God is an awesome God!
When we first started working on Providence, we had pretty low expectations. We knew it was the story that God had called us to tell, but we thought it would be for a limited audience since it was just a simple little silent love story.
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. What a special moment that was, to be recognized as “Best Female Director” and then “Best Film”. Since then, we’ve won many awards, but we’re always surprised anytime the emcee calls our name, and it never gets old. In the past two years we’ve been accepted and rejected, attended and not attended, won and lost many festivals. Along the way, we’ve learned a few secrets for film festival success.
