It was an honor to be selected as a finalist in the 2016 Peachtree Village International Film Festival. A live table read for Westbound was held at the South West Arts Center in Atlanta, where Jacques Buckingham, Otis Jackson and Jerrica Roy – all professional actors, breathed life into words. I networked with and met fellow writers, filmmakers, actors and comedians.
The festivities concluded with an awards ceremony honoring legends in the entertainment industry, Obba Babatumbe and Barbara Nivens.
The crowd was astounded to learn Barbara Nivens’ age and her long history in television and film. When Mr. Babatumbe spoke, his soft well-spoken words resounded off the walls and into our hearts. They both were gracious recipients and people who embraced a crowd of fans.
It was indeed a spectacular night and although I did not walk away the Big Kahuna, I am by far a richer person for the experience. Thank you Peachtree Village International Film Festival. I had a blast!!!!
