"Greencastle", Movie Shot in and Around Hagerstown Wins Film Festival Award in California; Film to Premiere to Public in Hagerstown March 31

"Greencastle" Movie Is Now An Award-Winning Film

Greencastle, PA - "Greencastle," a movie written, directed and staring Greencastle resident Koran Dunbar, has completed a world premier and its first festival competition in Idyllwild, CA.

Dunbar brought home the film's first award for Best Sound/Audio. The festival, about 2 hours southeast of Los Angeles, ran from January 12-15.

"Greencastle" is a quirky off beat faith-based drama about man’s search for meaning amidst the ache of despair. The story chronicles Poitier, a single father who works as an Assistant Manager at a small town pet shop, as he enters a "quarter-life crisis" impelled by a recent tragedy. Greencastle intertwines lives of loneliness and disconnection, fatefully leading Poitier toward an unexpected and sublime awakening.

"Our congratulations go out to John Avarese for his sound mixing and Matthew Datcher for directing audio throughout the film," said Dunbar.

The film was also nominated for the following awards:

-- Best Feature -- Best Screenplay -- Best Musical Score --

Dunbar said, "We can't thank the community, fans and especially our corporate sponsors enough for their dedication and support of their project." The film is being sponsored by:

- The Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau (http://www.marylandmemories.org)

- Design Data, Inc - Gaithersburg, MD (http://www.designdata.com)

- Wired Technologies - Hagerstown, MD (http://www.wiredtechnologies.com)

"We also want to thank WJAL-TV68 and the Leitersburg Cinemas for their ongoing support," said Dunbar.

The full length feature movie can be seen at a special red carpet event at the Maryland Theatre on March 31, 2012. Tickets are available online at the Maryland Theatre at www.mdtheatre.org.
