Festival Submissions & Premiere Screening

Posted by Brian Gersten (Creator)

Hello friends, backers, and confidants!

It's been a while since our last update so we just wanted to give a shout and let you know what's been happening lately....

Festival Submission Fun

And there's plenty more where that came from! Thanks to everyone's generosity we've been able to submit to some amazing festivals thus far. We'll obviously keep you posted on when/if we get into these fests. But if all goes well, we're hoping to have our festival premiere sometime in mid-September.

Speaking of Premieres...

To celebrate the completion of the film, and to show our thanks to all the people who made this documentary possible we'll be screening "The Hollerin' Contest at Spivey's Corner" at the Spivey's Corner Fire House on September 4th. If you're able to make it, please join us! If you know of anyone in the Eastern North Carolina area who may be interested in attending, please share this info with them. Here's a link to our facebook event page:

Your Rewards

Some of you have already received your rewards, and others are still waiting. We thank you for your patience, and we know you must be eager to see the film. If you're still waiting on a digital copy of the documentary, as well as bonus features, expect to be receiving your goodies in the next few weeks. And if you have any questions/concerns about anything, don't hesitate to get in touch.


Brian, Liv, & Geoff
