Jacksonville Film Festival Confirmations

The Jacksonville Film Festival reports -

"The following films have been confirmed for the Jacksonville Film Festival:


Crazy: Inspired by the life of Hank Garland, CRAZY is the story of a legendary guitar player who emerged from Nashville in the 1950’s. Blessed with incomparable, natural talent, Hank quickly established his reputation as the finest sessions player in Nashville. Artists such as Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, The Everly Brothers and Elvis all sought Hank’s brilliant play for their recordings. Moving effortlessly from country, to rock-a-billy, to jazz, Hank was also quickly recognized by the likes of Dave Bruebeck, Gary Burton, Joe Morello and Joe Benjamin.


Inside The Circle: Capturing the raw power of a grassroots hip-hop movement in the heart of Texas, INSIDE THE CIRCLE tells the story of two strikingly talented b-boys, Josh and Omar, former best friends who become rivals when they join competing dance crews. Immersed in the b-boy culture of defiant creativity, Omar rises to international renown while Josh tangles with the Texas criminal justice system. Both of them struggle to keep dance at the center of their lives, and the “B-Boy City” competitive events thrown by visionary street dancer Romeo Navarro serve as emotional milestones in their journey to adulthood. Facing off in intense dance battles that mirror the larger events in their lives, Josh and Omar seekredemption, identity and respect “inside the circle.” As Romeo aptly observes:
“If you can hold yourself down in battle, you can hold yourself down in life.”

"Inside the Circle" followed by B boy battles and graffiti artist competition."
