We are very proud to have been a host of this year's South Alabama Film Festival. The weekend was a blast. Getting to meet film makers of all ages from all over the country. We had several of the feature film makers actually stay here at the Inn during the festival.
I do not know where to begin to start off but I am going to try to detail as much as possible about the festival.
Starting this past Friday November 4th, we had the opening party here at the Inn for the Film Festival. I would guess around a 100 people were in attendance and it was a lot of networking and just meeting the people of the festival. The catering was done by Heroes and The Royal Scam and well yea that should tell you how good it was.
On Friday evening after the party we were invited to the opening film in the Cathedral Square here downtown. It was a bit chilly outside but we all went and enjoyed the opening nights feature film, General Orders Number 9.
Saturday was really our favorite day of the festival. I feel like we watched over 20 films in one day and enjoyed the Shed Barbecue for lunch. The local film office invited down the state film director and his wife and we really had a good time meeting up with them throughout the weekend and having them stay here at the inn with us.
Ok I am sure you really want to know which film got the A+ and was our favorite.
It had to be Missing Pieces! This was a super preview that was got to see at the Crescent Theatre, one of our loyal partners in crime. The movie was outstanding and the Q&A afterwards with the twenty two year old writer, producer, and director was very educational. We really think you should be looking for this film in a theatre near you very soon. A Special Thanks goes out to everyone of the festival. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful event and thank you to all of the film makers and attendees that booked a room at the inn. Fort Conde Inn was fully booked this past weekend and we are very proud to say that there are many more of those to come.
With Kind Regards,
Fort Conde Inn
