Director Christopher Foley took home first prize for his pitch about feature film Across: The Father Tolton Movie at the annual Tennessee Women in Film and Media event.
This year, TWIFM wanted to showcase local filmmakers by letting them present their projects to a panel of industry experts. Producer/Director Lisa Arnold (God’s Not Dead,”) Steve Hayes of APM/Universal, and Mike Stryker of Casting Life Productions joined entertainment attorneys Corky Kessler and Angela Green as judges.
“Christopher’s pitch was the most clear and the most developed, and we think Across has a bright future,” said Arnold when announcing the panel’s decision.
Foley was given a cash prize courtesy of the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County as well as a voucher for $1000 of legal services with Kessler’s firm.
