Below is a small sampling of the films we've screened at ACEFEST and the success they've had since. This list is growing rapidly so be sure to check back often!
Person, Place or Thing Directed by Elle Martini
This incredible short, starring Zoe McLellan picked up a great deal of momentum following its screening at ACEFEST 2008. In addition to countless reviews, endless acclaim and a MovieMaker Magazine exclusive director interview, the film is now being turned into a feature.
The Outhouse Directed by Jack Truman
After stunning the audience at ACEFEST 2008, this hilarious short documentary continued on the festival circuit with great success and is currently in pre-production for a feature-length adaptation with original cast and director.
Lifelines (Aka "Wherever You Are") Directed by Rob Margolies
A film with refreshingly dry humor and a star-studded cast, Lifelines will return to New York City for a theatrical run starting in April 2009. From there, a nation-wide release may be on the horizon.
Kill Kill Faster Faster Directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts
ACEFEST brought this fine specimen of cinematic excellence to New York and it's been flying a mile a minute since. In addition to collecting prestigious awards at film festivals worldwide, this feature-length drama has signed a UK distribution deal with Kaleidoscope and an international sales deal with Galloping Films.
Crawford Directed by David Modigliani
This very timely documentary simply exploded after it rocked the crowd at ACEFEST 2008. With a highly-publicized release on Hulu, a deal with Netflix, CNN interviews, talk show appearances, reviews, awards and a 50-state screening party under its belt, Crawford doesn't appear to be losing momentum - regardless of who's in the Oval Office.
Second Skin Directed by Juan Carlos Peneiro
After a sold-out screening at ACEFEST 2008, this compelling film was voted in the Top 5 Documentaries of the Year by our friends at Aint It Cool News and continues to get undying praise and hype from magazines, TV and across the web.
The Rainbow Tribe Directed by Christopher R. Watson
A touching dramedy that garnered an enourmous cult following after its screening at ACEFEST 2008. Massive petitions for theatrical release and dvd distribution bode well on the future of this sensational film.
Looking for Ms.Locklear Directed by Link Neal and Rhett McLaughlin
Winning the Audience Choice Award at ACEFEST2008 caught the attention of film festival programmers across the globe. The feature is now being distributed regionally on PBS and continues to entertain festival audiences without fail.
The Reruiter Directed by Edet Belzberg
Another politically-pertinent film that played ACEFEST 2008, The Recruiter has since gone onto network distribution via The Sundance Channel and HBO.
Baghdad Diary Directed by Joseph Consentino and Sandra Consentino
ACEFEST 2008's programming clearly had a non-intentional political undertone and Baghdad Diary was no exception to the trend. This daring documentary is now actively played on, and distributed on DVD by, The History Channel.
Anniversary Present Directed by Doug Karr
One of our personal top picks of the 2007 program, this short's quirky punchline ending earned it massive broadband distribution via the Atom Network.
Stalking Santa Directed by Greg Kiefer
This ACEFEST 2007 crowd favorite was released internationally on DVD shortly after its screening here in New York - just in time for the holidays!
Little Chenier Directed by Bethany Ashton Wolf
One of ACEFEST 2007's show-stopping dramas, this feature endured a very impressive national theatrical run and is now avilable on DVD.
