This weekend we screened the film at the Victoria TX Indie Film Festival, where we were nominated for Best Documentary. Cole was there to represent the filmmaking team, and held a Q&A with the audience.
At the closing ceremony of the festival, The Surrounding Game was announced as the winner of the 'Frels Award'! The Frels is a tribute to the late Rubin Frels, a tireless advocate for the arts who spearheaded independent film in south Texas for many years.
We've got another festival in two weeks - the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in Dubuque, IA. See you there!
