Another 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.

We submitted “The Exit Bag” to the fourth festival today. This one to the Lone Star Film Festival, to be held in Fort Worth, Texas on November 13 – 17. Notification date is September 15. This will be the 13th year for this festival.

We have submitted our film to the Lake Charles Film & Music Festival (October 4th & 5th, 2019), 24fps International Short Film Festival (November 8-9, 2019) and the Houston Film Commission’s Texas Filmmaker’s Showcase (June 23, 20109). We have also targeted about 12 other festivals that we will be submitting to in the near future. Check back here often for submission and film festival news.
Everything is coming together. We recently finalized the official The Exit Bag poster.
Official Exit Bag Trailer
After months of writing, planning, casting, shooting… we have finally put the finished tag on The Exit Bag. We will be posting the official trailer soon. Our next step is submitting to the film festivals. Check this blog often as we will be blogging about our experiences on the film festival circuit.
We thought that we were finally going to start filming last Friday, but it was for not. It’s starting to be a theme for The Exit Bag. The old adage “hurry up and wait,” seems to fit, but hopefully we will get kicked off soon.
We are doing the last of the three still shots tomorrow. This one will feature Craig Gibson as a jumper. The stills will be used when our hero, Philip Canton, is searching the internet on suicide methods. We want to thank Craig in advance for letting us bloody him up and take some pics.
