Asheville Film Festival
We had a great time at the festival. Greg's film didn't win but we had a great time watching it with an audience and seeing some of the reactions (three ladies were wiping tears away) and The Independent newspaper wants to do a write-up on the film. So that was cool!
Greg Winters, Writer/Director, Anthony Short, Compser, Greg Easterbrook, Director of Photography
It was neat to get to watch some of the other films too and fun to hang out in Asheville for the day. We ate at this REALLY yummy restaurant called Salsa that was so packed they put us outside in the alley which was extra exciting! :) :) They said if the Fire Marshal came then we would have to move. The food was excellent!
Fried plantains with avocado garlic sauce on top. These were divine. Although the picture doesn't quite do it justice.
We also enjoyed the muffins and local cider at Sisters McMullin Cupcake Shop. :)
I think I will have to try one of these next time.
A little Asheville flavor.
The highlight of the evening for Greg was getting to meet Frank Pierson, writer of "Cool Hand Luke." Mr. Pierson gave a really inspiring speech for aspiring writers and film makers.
