Following a sold-out festival record of 600+ at the 2014 Capital City Film Festival in Lansing MI, “Ashes of Eden” producers DJ Perry and Shane Hagedorn were approached by East Lansing Festival Director, Susan Woods. She encouraged Perry and Hagedorn to submit ‘Ashes’ to this year’s East Lansing Film Festival. ELFF, now in its seventeenth year, is the oldest and second largest in Michigan. Ashes of Eden was submitted, accepted, and is now officially part of the Lake Michigan Film Competition, which could be eligible for cash prizes and awards such as BEST FEATURE FILM.
"Our Michigan made film has had a fantastic year. To close out 2014 as an official selection to ELFF, is a great achievement. I believe our film represents the very best of Michigan talent and creative artists. To screen our film at a prestigious film festival like ELFF is an honor." – Shane Hagedorn, Writer/Director/Producer
Ashes continues an impressive and successful theatrical run throughout the state of Michigan playing for several weeks at Celebration Cinema in both Lansing and Grand Rapids. The film just concluded a run at Emagine theaters at the Novi and Canton Michigan locations. Discussions with several theater chains are still underway.
“We’ve appreciated the opportunity to play on the big screen and look forward to being able to give others at home the same opportunity. We are planning on making a big announcement at the ELFF screening concerning this.” – DJ Perry Producer/Co-star
The producing team plans to announce a North America distribution deal for the title at the ELFF. Sources say it will be available on DVD, VOD, and streaming media platforms, first quarter of 2015.
