Tonight, our short film HENLEY screens at the Cucalorus Annual Festival of Independent Film in Wilmington, North Carolina. It will be the seventeenth film festival HENLEY will have screened at since we hit up the circuit last year, kickstarting the blitz with the Gen Art Film Festival in NYC. It was around about this time last year that we first got word that we had been accepted into the Sundance Film Fest, so it's pretty crazy to look back now at all the different corners of the world where HENLEY has gone on to screen. Everywhere from Malaysia to Mexico, to my hometown in Richmond, Virginia to Clint Eastwood's own fest in Carmel, California.
Now that we're gearing up to produce a feature length version of HENLEY with The Woodshed and Parent Company Films, it's exciting to think, in a year or more (definitely more), we'll be hitting up the festival circuit again… Fingers crossed. First, though, we should probably shoot the damn thing.

“Macneill's odd film was one of the more original shorts on show at this year's Sundance... With a fantastic performance from its young star at its heart and some standout cinematography on show, Henley’s originality is bound to make it noticeable in whichever festival it finds itself next.”
