Phenom Film Festival Edition

My sister Anne and I discuss Ed Epstein’s Hollywood Economist, Tom Cruise INC, and the Phenom Film Festival on this week’s podcast. Some good news: the documentary For the Love of Books was awarded the festival’s Audience Choice Award for a feature film.  The trophy is pictured as the image on the podcast player below. Press play to listen or check out the podcast on iTunes by typing “Prof. Torg’s Read, Write, and Teach Digital Book Club” right into the spot where you’d type a song.

To get to the film festival, Anne came via Burbank and me White Plains, NY and we met in Dallas. We rented a car and made the 4-5 hour drive to Shreveport / Bossier City for the Phenom Film Festival. On the way, we stopped off in Jefferson, Texas to see the star of my film, Kathy Patrick. Here’s a pic of Anne and I out front of Kathy’s Beauty and the Book hair salon.

Epstein’s Hollywood Economist got Anne and I talking about how often we go to the movies.  I think Anne’s an oddball! Just about the only way she sees a movie is in the theater.  How about you?
