Pics & Highlights from THE SAXOPHONIST NewarkIFF Screening

We want to thank everyone who came out to support THE SAXOPHONIST and all the other amazing short films in our block at the Newark International Film Festival. The turnout was absolutely fantastic and the response was overwhelmingly positive. I personally want to thank the festival founder Ken Gifford for giving us the platform to finally have our film play on a big screen in front of a real audience. It was also such an honor to be playing opposite a new film by one of my cinematic heroes, Mario Van Peebles, whose dad Melvin kicked down the doors for all of us in this business. It was truly an honor and a privilege to be part of this exciting event.

We’ll have plenty of pics and interviews from NewarkIFF in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more upcoming screening announcements.
