High Art and Holy Spirit Team Up at the Ragamuffin Film Festival
The Hope Arts Festival and local film collective Project Seven host an Evangelical Christian film festival at the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown this weekend.
Screens Story  July 12, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...It's no mistake, then, that Austin filmmaker David Taylor and the local Evangelical church Hope Chapel have joined forces to create a film festival -- called Ragamuffin -- that not only bypasses the overwrought sermonizing but also showcases a wide swath of filmmaking talent that ranges from Taylor's own AdBusters-inspired, 30-second faux public service announcements to more contemplative shorts like Jeffrey Travis' "The Party," which tackles adult themes that are both universal and Christian from a whole new angle...."

For all the dates and showtimes, head over to www.ragamuffinfilm.org or www.drafthouse.com...."

Local screenwriter Todd Morris gets in good with Miramax / Dimension, and our apologies to the Ragamuffin Film Festival … not that they needed us, anyway.

"...And it did."... A belated and apologetic congratulation to David Taylor over at the Christian-oriented Ragamuffin Film Festival, which managed to sell out nearly all of its showings this past weekend at the Alamo Drafthouse Village, this despite our dropping the ball and not giving them a mention..."
