Submission Number Six

Submission number six for The Exit Bag.  This time for the Lost River Film Festival to lost riverbe held on October 17-20 in San Marcos, Texas.

An interesting story of how this festival got its rather unusual name. The horror film Piranha was shot locally in 1978.

This festival would be a special one to make for a couple of the people involved with The Exit Bag. Chris Lancaster, who provided the original music for film, lives just minutes down I-35 from San Marcos. It would be a great chance for him to see his work at a film festival. Also, writer/producer Ron Hervey’s daughter Hannah is a student at Texas State University, which is in San Marcos.

Notification date for The Lost River Film Festival will be September 14. We have our fingers crossed.

Simply Indie Film Festival

simply indieAnother submission for The Exit Bag.  This time for a first year festival – Simply Indie Film Festival to be held on March 6-8, 2020 in Edmond, Oklahoma. Normally we shy away from submitting to first year festivals, but this one is going to be organized by a couple of people that built the Red Dirt Film Festival. In just six years, Red Dirt has grown into a wonderful festival. We expect the same for Simply Indie. Notification date for Simply Indie will be December 31, so we have a ways to go to see if we are selected for this festival.
