This weekend The Last Survivor screened at the Oxford Film Festival. It marked the first official film festival that the Righteous Pictures team has attended. Hopefully, it will turn out to be the first of many. The Oxford Film Festival, which started in 2003, brings independent filmmakers from across the country to Oxford, Mississippi to showcase their work and interact with the audience at a number of social events.
The Last Survivor was extremely well-received at Oxford. So much so, in fact, that we were presented with the “Hoka” Award for Best Documentary Feature. What an honor. And as if that was not excitement enough, just this morning we were informed that The Last Survivor also won the Audience Award for best overall film in the festival. A positive first step in the festival tour!
