Official Selection: INDEP Arts & Film Festival, San Antonio

Happy to announce that my short documentary film The Candle has been named an official selection of the INDEP Arts & Film Festival in San Antonio, Texas. The film will screen Thursday, June 16 @ 6:30pm at the Santikos Rialto Theater in San Antonio.

The INDEP Arts & Film Festival is committed to supporting the diversity of artists and filmmakers in their abilities to create, inspire and share within the community. By providing a space to celebrate the artists’ talents, the festival strives to enhance the community’s public awareness and appreciation of all arts.

INDEP ARTS & FILM FESTIVAL

The Candle features NYC street artist Marthalicia Matarrita and her two brothers Tomas & Jorge and was filmed in the summer of 2013 in a sweltering basement studio in the Bronx. The 6 minute film tells how they overcame poverty and extreme living conditions through their passion for art...and the light of a candle.

After having my other two short films, Angels with Shoes and GRAFSTRACT: The Bronx Street Art Renaissance take up the majority of my focus in 2015, I'm glad to have The Candle generate new film festival interest in 2016. It's a film I'm very proud of so if you happen to be in the San Antonio area, stop by the INDEP Arts & Film Festival and check it out - as well as the other great films (and the art!)
