SAN ANTONIO, TX — October 29, 2010 — The San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival which kicked off yesterday in the Alamo City, will be hosting an exclusive, pre-release screening of the highly-anticipated new film, Ace Wonder: Message from a Dead Man, tonight at 7:30 at San Antonio’s Municipal Auditorium. The film is the latest project of HeuMoore Productions, whose last film, The Widow’s Might, won the $101,000 Grand Prize, as well as the Audience Choice Award, at the 2009 festival.
“We’re pleased to be featuring a sneak preview of Ace Wonder to our audience tonight,” stated Doug Phillips, founder of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. “It’s a joy to see the filmmakers who we honored last year with our Best of Festival Award go right back to work and reach for greater heights with this impressive new film.”
Ace Wonder follows the adventure of a boy detective who is struggling to find a storyline for his latest novel. When his path tangles with Derek Morton, a simple family mystery becomes a very real case of corporate espionage, scientific discovery, and one coldblooded killer.
Ace Wonder is one of more than fifty films showing on four screens as part of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, which runs October 28-30 in the Alamo City. The film screenings and special entertainment are being held in downtown San Antonio at the Gonzalez Convention Center and the Municipal Auditorium.
“We are blessed to see real growth in the independent Christian film movement since we launched the film festival in 2004,” remarked Doug Phillips. “The families spearheading HeuMoore Productions are one example among many who are striving to engage the culture through film with God-honoring stories that are told with artistic excellence. A new generation of filmmakers is emerging outside Hollywood ready to claim the moral high ground through well-crafted films, rather than follow the destructive values of Tinseltown.”
At the festival’s annual Jubilee Awards, which closes out the event on Saturday, awards will be given in several categories, including ‘Best Dramatic Short’, ‘Best Documentary’, ‘Best Feature Film’, along with their $101,000 ‘Best of Festival’ Award, which is the largest single cash prize given by any film festival in America.
