Redneck Weddings got it’s debut at the Hoboken International Film Festival. It was my first experience as a Filmmaker/Creator being accepted at a festival. Out of 1500 entries only 150 were selected and only 14 TV pilots were chosen.
So, it was a big deal for everyone involved with Redneck Weddings!
I had a blast to say the least.
Here are some photos of my time in Middletown NY. Yes Middletown NY not Hoboken NJ. You see they had a fire at a theatre in Hoboken the festival Director Kenneth Del Vechicco was shooting a film up in Middletown and decided to hold the festival there! The Paramount Theatre is a beautiful theatre Redneck Weddings was shown in the big theatre. I was 50 feet tall!!!
Burt Young was honored at the festival among other celebrities that came out! It was quite a week.

I have been busy with so many things and as I write on my blog I don’t know where to start. Ha! I want to thank everyone who continues to share this blog and follow it. People say that I have a lot of passion, drive and heart I have learned that when you follow your heart you can never go wrong in anything that you tried to accomplish. I know that sounds corny but sometimes what your parents or grandparents tell you it never goes out of fashion. I guess I am an old soul. I like old music I think I wrote about that on another post that Sammy Davis Jr and Frank Sinatra is what I like to hear. It brings me back to my childhood and my memory of my Godmother and may I say my Mother who use to sing those songs back in the day. My mother was my biggest fan and always encouraged me to continue even when things seem bleak. I am so use to “No” that when something good happens I get like “Wow” this is happening to me? So, as I ramble now I remember now what I wanted to tell you…
I guess you can now call me a published writer. I am on a new online magazine called No Strings Attached. This online magazine is getting some great attention. It’s about everything, travel, entertainment, News stories etc. If you like my commentary I know you will like these two articles. It’s great fun to write and they also say write what you know. There are two subjects that I love acting and my dog Athena.
Here are some links:
A film that I worked on as an actress called Wheels got accepted into the Newport Beach Film Festival this past month.
Here is the trailer: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=733561516675212
I also want to let you know that the Hoboken International Film Festival has accepted my TV Pilot Redneck Weddings. Like Sally Field’s once said as she accepted her Oscar “They like me they like me they REALLY Like ME!” It is under TV Pilots. Hoboken International Film Festival is one of the top ten festivals in the USA. The festival is May 30th to June 5th. This will mark the debut for Redneck Weddings at a film festival. It is in the running to be voted a nominee for best TV Pilot! Let’s hope.
The screening will be on June 1st at 4 pm at the Paramount Theatre in Middletown NY. So, anyone out there who would like to see it on the big screen feel free to come on by. Tickets are very reasonable cheaper than a movie.
So there you go.
