It was an honor to have Max Peril screened as the finale film at Mississippi’s oldest film festival – the Magnolia Independent Film Festival.
We were in the company of a diverse group of filmmakers who had traveled to Starkville, MS from California, Utah, and even Norway. Of course, some of our favorite Mississippi filmmakers and actors were in the mix as well. It was a treat for us to hear how others approach the task of filmmaking. Everyone was warm, complimentary, and generous with sharing tales of their struggle.
The hospitality provided by the Magnolia fest was off the charts. A nice hotel room was provided for our weekend there, food was always available, and Angella Baker and the Magnolia team made us feel legitimately special. It’s a festival experience we won’t forget.
And to top that off, Max Peril won “Best Homegrown”!
