"SCRIPTURE CAKE" ACCEPTED INTO THE INDIE MEMPHIS FILM FESTIVAL
We've received word that "Scripture Cake" has been accepted to the showings at the Indie Memphis Soul of Southern Film Festival focusing on southern-made and southern-themed films as a unique art form and cultural experience. "Each year, the program includes films that are made in the South or by Southern filmmakers, as well as films that deal with the Southern experience expressed through themes or subjects that are particularly relevant to the South and Southerners." This describes exactly what Carolina Collaborations is all about!

After contacting everyone, we will announce the cast to the public on the website. Please check back often for the latest production notes, photos, and news about Bone Creek!
