This week, RSM Kris Wheeler and I are taking our documentary feature film, Duke & The King to the Nashville Film Festival. The film will have its world premiere this Sunday night at 9pm. Seeing that it’s a film by Southern men, about a Southern man and playing in a Southern film festival, it’s only natural that I would blog about our experiences.
The fun thing about film fests is that, while everyone fits the rather loose mold of being “creative types,” there really is a cross-section of folks from all over the country and the world. What better opportunity to spread the gospel of Southerness? Maybe I’ll even teach a little Twanglish to Famke Janssen or Nicole Kidman, both of whom will be in attendance.
Watch for regular updates this week as we get our fest on. In the meantime, here’s the trailer for the film:
