The films were outstanding and one feature that stood out was Dealer, an anthology starring Lundon Boyd as Kelly and had four directors, Jeremy Cloe, Jerry & Mike Thompson, Cody & Ryan LeBoeur and Adam Zielinski. Kelly finds out that he must become a drug dealer and deliver four illegal packages within 24 hours. It is a wild adventure portraying a dark humorous story with Kelly in an outstanding role. The film was directed by Lundon Boyd produced by Chuck Akin.

The Las Vegas Film Festival gives the independent filmmakers an opportunity to meet and network and screen their movies and hopefully win awards and distribution deals. As always a director’s lounge is set up providing food and drinks for everyone. This was an exciting film festival with excellent films. A special thank you goes out to the festival team and we look forward to the next LVFF.
