So I'll explain why I am excited about THIS festival. The BronzeLens Film Festival happened to be on my top 5 list of film festivals to submit to. AND it finally gets a debut at my home base, in Georgia...finally.! I have had so many folks ask me how and when they could see it in Atlanta and now I can finally announce a screening date and time which is one of the exciting aspects of this film festival journey.
I'll take you back on when I heard about Mr. Gele's acceptance into the festival.....
This year, for the very first time, the BronzeLens Film Festival announced all the selected films from the CNN studios in Atlanta, GA on Facebook Live on July 12th at noon! Now keep in mind that on this day, I drove, with my 2 kids in tow, to Charlotte, North Carolina for the CineOdyssey Film Festival and didn't make it in till about 11.50am. So immediately my kids and I got to our destination, I quickly logged onto Facebook Live to view the live broadcast. Within the next five minutes, all I heard was "Mr, Gele: The Man. The Story. The Craft". You should have seen my kids and I jump for joy. It was so hilarious because we were in a very quiet neighborhood and I'm sure we disrupted someone's siesta..lol (I haven't heard that word in a while).
Yes, so "Mr. Gele" will be screening in Atlanta, GA on Sunday, August 19th at 3pm at the Southwest Arts Theater. It will be shown right before the screening of Isoken, directed and produced by Jade Osiberu. You can see the trailer to this very beautiful and colorful piece of work here.
