Thanks to Maximus, Candice, and Esther for organizing the festival and screening my ultra low-budget feature "The Dental Plan" in the beautiful (and very comfortable!) Capri Theatre. I got a chance to meet other filmmakers between screenings, at the evening get-together, and at the gala, which was also superb. In short: a wonderful experience at a wonderful festival!
Kudos to the team at JXN Film Festival for - quite an Amazing Experience. Maximus Wright, Dr. Candice Jackson, Esther Young, and Team JXN put forth a Herculean effort with the festival's offering of movie screenings, mentoring, screenwriting, educational, pitch sessions, for this year's event. They were able to secure top tiered talent to conduct each session, resulting in exceptional outcomes.
I attended the Black-Tie Gala at the close out ceremony on the last evening, with my 83 year old mother as my featured date. I was more than elated to have 2 projects nominated and selected as Award Winners - Cotton's Sack (Best Screenplay), Pharaoh Taharqa - Warrior King (Best Musical Score), and also receiving the AARP MS - SOAR Award, was truly a tri-fecta of a night, for which I am Forever Grateful!
