'Across,' the short film about the boyhood of the first African-American priest, has been named an official selection at the 20th Annual San Francisco Black Film Festival. The screening will be the West Coast premiere for the movie and will occur sometime between June 14th and 17th. The official schedule should be announced soon on the festival's website.
"I lived in California for a decade," said director Christopher Foley, "and I am psyched for us to be a part of this renowned event. It's an honor for our whole team."
'Across' has had an excellent week. Just 5 days ago, the feature film project (based on the short) was one of only 10 stories chosen in Nashville Film Festival's 'Pitch, Round Three.' Foley presented the story for a packed theater that included legendary film critic Leonard Maltin and executives from Netflix and other major studios.
