Bentonville Film Festival – Success!

Urban Country screened twice at the Bentonville Film Festival, in Bentonville, AR May 4 and 5.  Director Teddy Smith, Producer Matt Keith, and screenwriter Gianna Montelaro were on-hand to greet enthusiastic audience members and to provide a Q&A after the film.  With tremendous take-aways of praise, the film, which screened out of competition, is certainly proving to be a crowd pleaser and to fulfill our goals of creating another successful faith/family-friendly film for the masses.

The Bentonville Film Festival is sponsored by Walmart, being in the headquarters city.  We were thrilled to have the Walmart buyer in our audience who assuredly will want to take the title on in their DVD section.

We had a great time at a great festival.  Thanks Bentonville Film Festival for the gracious hosting.

Here are some local media reviews on the film:
