Local Filmmaker In Line For Cannes Award
A local filmmaker has become a finalist in a screenplay contest at the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival!
Arturo also recently premiered his feature film, "Beaten". According to Arturo, it's "about a hired hitman who seeks to avenge the death of his fiancée when she is gunned down in a crossfire aimed at her brother, Redd; who the hitman teams up with later on."
Arturo added Beaten was:
filmed in El Paso with local talent and crew. We screened it last week on March 27th, at the Northeast cinema. I sold out within two days. The movie is still in film festivals throughout this year until November 2019. So far, it's been selected into a few festivals as either a Semi-Finalist or a Finalist. I still am awaiting the results. There are over 40 festivals I've submitted to.
