2015 Heartland Film Festival Official Selection, Narrative Feature – Starring James Lafferty (“One Tree Hill”) and Danny Glover

This riches-to-rags tale is an adaptation of James Adams’ 2010 memoir of the same name, which chronicles the financier’s foray into the food industry. After being laid off at the hedge fund where he worked, and further jaded by his culpability in the crisis, Adams chose to work at a popular 24-hour diner where he claims “most of his financial knowledge has been gleaned.” Offering a fresh take on the fallout of corporate greed, Waffle Street tells the tale of Adam’s redemption and unlikely friendship found under the tutelage of Edward, the best short order cook in town.

Director/Writer Ian Nelms and Director/Writer Eshom Nelms scheduled to attend.

The Champions Official Film Festival Trailer from Darcy Dennett on Vimeo.

2015 Heartland Film Festival Official Selection, Documentary Feature

The Champions is an inspirational story about the pit bulls rescued from the brutal fighting ring of Atlanta Falcon’s star quarterback Michael Vick, and those who risked it all to save them, despite pressure from PETA and The Humane Society to euthanize the dogs. It is a story of second-chances, redemption and hope. This uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs — about prejudice, being misunderstood, the power of resilience and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals.
