July 1. 2010: It’s been a busy week for Leland-based 8180 Films owners, Rebecca Reynolds and Jim Carpenter. On Sunday, June 27th, their indie drama, Christina, won two more major awards at New York City’s VISIONFEST 10 at the Tribeca Cinemas: Outstanding Achievement in Writing (Larry Brand) and Outstanding Achievement in Acting (Stephen Lang).
Now the 6PM Red Carpet Premiere at Traverse City’s State Theatre on Sunday July 18th is a sell-out. A second screening of Christina has been added at 9PM, also featuring a Q&A with the director and cast following the film. Tickets for the 9PM screening are ten dollars and can be purchased at the State Theatre Box Office or online at www.statetheatretc.org
