World's Largest At Hot Springs Doc Fest
This was a great weekend for those who enjoy terrific filmmaking and wonderful story telling. On Saturday, attendees of the Flyway Film Festival enjoyed a fantastic film, World's Largest: A Documentary About Small Towns With Big Things by the talented, Elizabeth Donius and Amy C. Elliott. Also on Saturday evening then again on Sunday morning, film lovers attending the Hot Springs Doc Fest in Arkansas enjoyed screenings of World's Largest. Many have heard announcements of the world's largest buffalo or the largest moose statue. Elizabeth and Amy travelled around to various small towns to document the towns' road side attractions which the residents in those towns market in the hopes of drawn tourists and business to their towns. Those who were lucky enough to check out the film at either festival this weekend enjoyed some wonderful story telling and filmmaking. Those who have yet to see the film, make sure to stay tuned to festivals in your area because when Elizabeth and Amy's film reaches you, it will be a treat and plenty of fun.
