We have come a long way since our first festival screening in chilly Boston back on February 7, 2016. That premiere started a whirlwind adventure of film festival screenings throughout much of 2016, a bunch of award wins and honors, then ultimately found us receiving an offer from A+E Networks for a television broadcast premiere on Lifetime, followed by a theatrical and digital release and international distribution!
That Lifetime deal however prevented us from screening at the Action On Film Festival back then, but now that we have cleared all our distribution windows 2 years hence, the AOF has invited us back for a special Encore Screening at their 2018 Mega Fest extravaganza! Special thanks to Del and Theresa Weston for the opportunity to share this film on the big screen one more time.
Writer/Director Kenneth Mader will be in attendance at the screening of DISPLACEMENT Sunday, August 19th, at the Brenden Theatres in the Palms Hotel, Las Vegas, as well as his most recent project, ECHOES, which has it’s World Premiere at the festival the day before on August 18th.
“After her father’s untimely death, a teenager suffering from sleep disorders is haunted by a vengeful spirit which may or may not be a hallucination. Her visions ultimately lead to a shocking revelation about an unsolved murder.” — To learn more about ECHOES check out www.maderfilm.com/echoes.
Hope to see you there!
