Film festivals have long been acknowledged as communities and safe spaces for filmmakers of all levels and genres to network, share ideas, forge lasting connections, amplify underlying issues depicted in their films, exchange knowledge on film industry trends, and learn from one another. One such film festival creating this all-encompassing ecosystem is the Peachtree Village International Film Festival.
The Peachtree Village International Film Festival features some of the world’s greatest indie and mainstream films, alongside music and technology, placing them on a global stage where they have the opportunity to receive their flowers while raking in prizes and awards. The annual film festival awards over fifty thousand dollars in cash prizes, juicy contracts, and worldwide distribution to the winners in the feature-length, short film, music video, documentary, and screenplay categories.
This year, the romantic short film, UnOrdinary Love, directed by the talented Amanda Rosario Glass and written, produced, and co-directed by Curtis Brown, is privileged to be a finalist in the 17th Peachtree Village International Film Festival, which is set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia from the 3rd to the 6th of November, 2022. UnOrdinary Love also qualified as a finalist in the highly-competitive Jaro Short Film Competition, where the selected short wins a substantial cash prize and distribution on the Jaro Media platform.
The film, UnOrdinary Love, revolves around Patrick, who is torn between lust and love as he meets the love of his life, Violet, while he tries to survive in a toxic relationship with his girlfriend, Livie. The film presents the struggles of a man who has to make a choice and fight for true love, featuring a stellar cast that includes the likes of Amanda Rosario Glass, Valeka Jessica, Steve Lock Franks, and Autumn Monroe, to mention a few.
“As a co-director, writer and producer on this great project I had an opportunity to work with a very talented cast and crew. I’m elated about our end result with this film. Being a finalist at PVIFF this year and in the PVIFF-Jaro Shorts Competition is an amazing feat. We hope to do well and create many more great projects in the near future, said Brown (Co-Director/Writer/Producer).
