Reel Conversations with Chris Hudson, director/producer for the Mayberry Effect
This event is available for the duration of the festival.
(20 mins.) Thomas Manning speaks with Chris Hudson, producer/director for The Mayberry Effect. This doc explores how The Andy Griffith Show has influenced individuals and audiences for over 60-years. From Bible studies, to fan celebrations, to tribute artists, to the philosophy of nostalgia, The Mayberry Effect asks the question … is Mayberry more than just a place? Hudson, a filmmaker for more than two decades, felt drawn to examine the lasting power of the Andy Griffith show, and its continued impact.
We are all children at heart. You’re invited to rediscover that childhood (and maybe even find out something about your present and future) with the Real to Reel Film Fest official selections for this year’s Kid’s fest. Varied styles of animation from around the world are featured in this Kid’s Fest block of films. A sci-fi story of friendship; environmental awakening, and anti-bullying are a few of the themes you’ll find this year.
For over 20-years, Real to Reel has featured docs from around the world. This year, our slate of doc shorts will carry you from abandoned mines in Canadian ghost towns, to alpine huts in the White Mountains, to rivers in Ellsworth, Maine. You’ll also be offered environmental poetry with a thought-provoking stroll through the forest, a ride with a young rodeo talent, and a seat next to a 104-year-old church organist in rural North Carolina.
Drama, action, dark comedy, coming of age & horror are all on display for the official short films of the 21st Annual Real to Reel Film Fest. Since the inception of the festival over two decades ago, the film short has been a staple of this multi-category film fest. You’ll find works from professional filmmakers w/ connections to the Hollywood industry, student projects from film schools & amateur filmmakers with a love of the art of cinema.
