AFL Picks Up Film Award #8 at Myrtle Beach
"ALL FOR LIBERTY" was selected as one of fourteen features in the festival and screened on the last day of the festival. Also in attendance were the Felder's daughter, Helen Felder Huggins and grandaughter, Caroline. "It was fabulous to see the movie again on a big screen in the beautiful Carmike theater," said Chris Weatherhead. "Jeffrey Stern's spectacular sound design and Tony De Ritis' haunting orchestral score were well-served by the great sound system they have. I got pulled into the story all over again even after working on the project for years, it still gets me."
Clarence Felder agreed. "It reminded us again why we sacrificed so much to get this done, he said. “But of course it can't touch the sacrifices that were made by Captain Felder and the other patriots who founded our country."
Michael Easler, who portrays Governor Rutledge said, "Every time I see it I find wonderful new nuances in the story, acting and art direction to enjoy. It was a great opportunity to see it again in a big theater."
The creative team, cast and crew are to be congratulated once again! This is a great Christmas present to our company and inspires us to continue spreading the word on the project by selling on our website and working towards a good distribution deal.
The Myrtle Beach win brings our award total to eight, joining prizes from the Accolade Competition, WorldFest Houston and the Charleston International Film Festival. ALL FOR LIBERTY received its world premiere in China as an official selection at the New Beijing Film Festival's International Movie Week.
