Woke up to some good news this morning: Max Peril nabbed a Best Feature win from the Gulf Coast Sun and Sand Film Festival!
The film was shown on October 11th, 2015 at the Gulfport Cinemark theater, to an enthusiastic crowd. We had a great Q&A session and established some new filmmaker friendships before we left.
When we didn’t think Max Peril news could get any better, tonight we received a call from James “Sonny” Howard who, along with Mark Forte, attended a Max Peril screening at the Rails to Reels Film Festival.
(Sonny played the roles of Cousin Ellis and the toothpic-tossing Russian, and Mark Forte played the roles of Myron and Blanco Duro.)
They were delighted to inform us that Max Peril took home Best Feature!
