A ROAD MOVIE IN A HEARSE. Accepted to ten film festivals and winner of five awards including Best Narrative Feature, the movie will be released worldwide in February 2009 by Indie-Pictures.

'Defying Gravity' is a quirky dramedy about a runaway girl who lives in a Jewish cemetery. She is befriended by the cemetery caretaker (an illegal alien), a transvestite waitress, and a homeless young man haunted by mathematical and religious delusions. The movie has previously screened at the Digital Video & High Def Festival in Beverly Hills (where it won Best Story/Writing), the Riverside International Film Festival, the Fallbrook Film Festival (Director's Choice Award), the AOF (Action on Film) International Film Festival (Best LGBT Project) in Pasadena, the Feel Good Film Festival in Hollywood, the Wildwood By the Sea Film Festival (Best Narrative Feature) in NJ, the Other Venice Film Festival, the La Femme Film Festival in Beverly Hills, and the Red Rock Film Festival in Springdale, Utah.

Featuring versatile actor Willam Belli and music from Eric Kufs and Common Rotation, the movie has been described as "... a funny, poignant and always interesting little film, built on well-designed characters and a fine story." (Dan Bennett, North County Times Newspaper). An article about the making of 'Defying Gravity' is featured in the 'Reel Life Adventures' section of the March/April issue of Indie Slate magazine: 'Defying the Odds: How a Middle-Aged Math Teacher Became an Indie Producer.'

In the heart of Central California's "Cowboy Wine Country," the inaugural Paso Robles Digital Film Festival (PRDFF.com) will take place Thursday, November 20 through Tuesday, November 25. On Saturday, November 22, Clint Eastwood will present to Academy Award-winning film editor Joel Cox the PRDFF's "Paderewski Lifetime Achievement Award for Contribution to the World of Music and Movies." Cox has worked with Eastwood for thirty years on films including Bird, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, Changeling and Unforgiven, for which he won an Oscar.

The theme for year one of what will be an annual festival examining the film industry in the digital age is "Music In Film." Headlining music acts include The Bacon Brothers (actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael), folk legend Ramblin' Jack Elliott, the Kyle Eastwood Band, The Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet and more.

Under the auspices of veteran event producer Benford Standley, producer Bruce Ricker and TV producer Chuck Banner a seven camera shoot of the festival will be filmed for DVD and television.

PRDFF highlights include: "Make My Saturday," a tribute to the musical and cinematic genius of Clint Eastwood that includes screenings of the Eastwood-directed Honkytonk Man (starring Eastwood and his son Kyle) and Bronco Billy; the documentary Martin Scorsese Presents Clint Eastwood's Piano Blues, produced by PRDFF advisor Bruce Ricker, who will moderate a panel on Eastwood's company Malpaso; and a screening of the Ricker-directed Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends.

The PRDFF will also host the first-ever 3-D Indie Film Expo, Monday, November 24th, 2-6 pm in the Park Ballroom in downtown Paso Robles. Experience over two-hours of immersive, award-winning three-dimensional screenings, live jazz entertainment, finger foods, chocolates and wine tasting. They will also be featuring a panel discussion on do-it-yourself 3-D moviemaking, a live high-definition 3-D video demonstration, a technology expo, and unique 3-D visual fine art displays.
