We will screen at the Camelot on Sunday, April 2nd @9:00pm. Producer Harold Millan and Story Consultant/Underscore Writer/Performer Alex Rea will be attending. There are three other festivals this weekend, so the team will have to break up and attend the screenings separately.
APRIL 1st, APRIL 2nd, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS will screen at Cleveland International Film Festival on April 1st @12:20pm and April 2nd @8:25pm at Tower City Cinemas. Director Matthew Millan, and Libyan-American Rapper Malik L will attend.

MARCH 15th, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its Central California premier at San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, with Director Matthew Millan, Producer Harold Millan, and Story Consultant and Underscore Writer/Performer Alex Rea attending.
Jason Reed drove down with his buddy Ian to attend the festival.
MARCH 4th, MARCH 5th, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its Asian premier at Cambodia International Film Festival in Phnom Penh. Sadly, the STB team wasn’t able to attend.
FEBRUARY 19th, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its West Coast premier at Noise Pop Festival, with Director Matthew Millan, and Assistant Director Donald Smith attending. Noise Pop has some reputation as a music festival, so it was a great honor to win the Jury Award for a Feature Film.
The award was of course a wonderful bonus, but it was even better to be able to hang out with old friends Donald Smith and Jason Reed.
FEBRUARY 18th, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its Northern European premier at DOCFeed Festival in Eindhoven, Netherlands, with Executive Producer Alistair Audsley attending.
FEBRUARY 18th, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its Mississippi debut at the Oxford Film Festival, with Director Matthew Millan and Producer Harold Millan attending. This was an outstanding festival, and one of the most organized we have ever attended. The parties were rockin’, and the films were outstanding.
One of the great thing about the film festival circuit is that you more than likely will see familiar faces. And Oxford was no different. Having run into Chris Brown two months before at the Santa Fe Film Festival, it was great catching up with him. And this time, I was able to see his outstanding film The Other Kids, a film that should become an anthem for teens on the precipice of graduating from high school.
JANUARY 29th, FEBRUARY 2nd, 2017: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its Italian premiere at the Seeyousound Festival in the fabled city of Turin, with Producer Harold Millan attending. Seeyousound is a music-oriented film festival, so it was an incredible honor to win the Best Soundtrack Award against a number of very strong music-oriented films. Sadly, Director Matthew Millan couldn’t attend, as he had just undergone neck surgery.
DECEMBER 10th, 2016: STRONGER THAN BULLETS made its New Mexico premier at The Santa Fe Film Festival, with Director Matthew Millan, and Story Consultants/musicians Alex Rea and Erik Niel attending. Sadly, we missed the closing ceremony, and the news that we picked up our second accolade: The Press Award.
At the festival, we saw a few familiar faces, including Allison, whose AMERICAN EPIC series shared the third festival with us. We met a number of wonderful people, including Victoria, Micky, and Laura.
