The Franklin International Independent Film Festival has chosen Across as an official selection in their 2018 line-up. The event, which takes place just a few miles from where the majority of the film was shot, will start on November 1. The festival runs for four days, but the screening time for the period drama has yet to be announced.
"This is exciting!" said Director Christopher Foley, "So many of our cast and crew live right in Franklin. The overwhelming majority of us are within 30 minutes. We hope to have a big turn-out from all around Middle Tennessee at this awesome event."
The producers chose the Nashville area for their shoot due to the gorgeous natural settings and the historic buildings from the Civil War era. On top of that, the area is home to a growing pool of talented actors and crew members. As the capital of not only Country Music, but Christian Music, Middle Tennessee has seen the burgeoning Faith-based film community take notice - and take root - in the rapidly expanding region.
Across is the short film about the boyhood of Father Augustine Tolton, America's first black priest. The producers are in the process of turning the short film into a full 2-hour feature.
