We’ve been dedicated to keeping you posted on Arkansas films in the PBS Online Film Festival and, now, we have an added reason to do so. Little Rock native Travis Mosler’s film “Diamond John” is in the nation’s top three, and your daily voting could help push him to the top!
After pulling ahead early, “Diamond John” has been in a great position throughout the festival, but, as more folks around the U.S. push for votes and test the system’s limits, competition is getting tighter.
So, how do we fight fire with fire for both “Diamond John” and Fayetteville native Diana Michelle Haussam’s “Westland”? This is one of those times where the best defense is a great offense!
In short, we think it’s key to vote now and vote often.
The PBS Online Film Festival allows you to vote once each day from each of your devices (phone, internet enabled television, tablet and pc(s)) and once from each browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera etc.).
So … in one week, you could vote for an Arkansas PBS OLFF entry more than 100 times! And why wouldn’t you? With a little bit of time (and, admittedly, some very slight inconvenience), you’ll give an Arkansas independent filmmaker a great boost. While the prize for winning the “People’s Choice” contest is in some ways largely bragging rights (since no cash prizes, etc., are awarded) the exposure from the festival can provide an incredible platform for filmmakers hoping to make the leap in their careers.
