DisAssociationVille Wins Final TrailDance

IMG_9769Twitchy Dolphin Flix’ newest movie DisAssociationVille won the final TrailDance Film Festival on June 30. DisAssociationVille is the 12th micro budget feature from Austin based Twitchy Dolphin Flix. Directed by James Christopher, it stars Austinites Derek Babb, Terissa Kelton, Reece Ryan and Terissa Kelton. After starting its festival run in mid November, the feature has already wracked up 26 official selection and 10 awards and counting.

The TrailDance film festival winds out its 10 year run of IMG_9795screening indie films from around the world in Duncan, OK. Festival Director Anthony Foreman honored James with the Director’s Choice award for the film.

Twitchy Dolphin Flix has been making movies in Austin Texas for 8 years, scoring festival successes with a variety of genres. DisAssociationVille continues its run through 2016 with screenings scheduled across the United States and across the globe, including a screening at the inaugural Ferrara Film Festival in Italy. This weekend, they will take part in the Frozen Film Festival in St. Paul, MN.

Big Milestones

Our features DisAssociationVille and XXXX ‪#‎PORNMOVIEMASSACRE‬ were each accepted into their 25th film festival! Excited for both, especially the selection by Bare Bones International Film & Music Festivals, my home away from home. 

Getting a feature into a festival isn’t easy. The running times alone make it hard to program. We try to make sure our features get programmed ten times to make sure they’re seen, to make sure the cast gets their exposure, ect ect.

For these movies to have been selected so often, and by such a diverse field of festivals isn’t just exciting, its humbling. It’s so easy in this endeavor to feel like a man on an island, pushing this thing uphill. That isn’t the case at all. When you don’t know the words to express how you feel, the easiest thing to do is to say thank you. Thank you to the casts, crews, supports and festival programers who choses these two films over hundred and sometimes thousands, of others. Its the kick in the pants that keeps us going.
