Hey everybody!

So a whole lot has happened over the past year - we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to help us get the film into festivals; subsequently the film has screened at over 15 prestigious film festivals across the country and overseas; we've won a handful of awards; and we we're named one of the 40 best documentaries of 2015 by the Spotlight Documentary Film Awards. All of this was an attempt to raise awareness and interest in the art of hollerin', but sadly, this past summer it was announced that The Hollerin' Contest would be ending after 47 years.

Well - Robby Goodman and Iris Turner, two of the intrepid hollerin' heroes from our film, weren't having any of that. The duo have decided to carry on the tradition and launch their own "World Wide Hollerin' Festival" which will be taking place this Saturday, November 5th. To honor the tradition of hollerin' and to celebrate the inaugural Hollerin' Festival, we've decided to release our film to the public on vimeo. Here's a link to the documentary:

It would mean so much to us - and the entire hollerin' community - if you could help keep hollerin' alive by liking the film on vimeo, and by sharing it with your friends/family on social media. We hope you enjoyed the documentary, and we would love to see you at the 1st Annual World Wide Hollerin' Festival on November 5th! Thank you so much.
