Invitation to Special Screening
Last year my client writer/director Craig Brewer completed his film “The Poor & Hungry” a story about a romance between a cello player and a car thief. The picture won the top prize for Best Digital Feature at the recent Hollywood Film Festival. It has received rave reviews and was in limited release at the Malco Theater in Memphis, Tennessee where it generated more than twice the receipts of such films as "The Cell" and "Blood Simple.” The film was also shown at the Austin Film Festival.
Most recently, the picture was shown at the Nashville Film Festival and won the Audience Choice, Independent Spirit and the Regal Cinema Best Feature Awards. The film has been licensed to the Independent Film Channel which will exhibit it nationwide next year.
You are invited to a special screening at the Director’s Guild sponsored by the Tennessee Film and Music Commission on September 13 at 7:00PM. The Director’s Guild is at 7920 Sunset Blvd. There is limited seating so please come early to assure yourself a seat.
