POKER DONKEY has been accepted into its first film festival!!!
The festival will be held in Beverly Hills, CA between May 27-June 10. There will be film screening events and Q&A sessions with the directors, cast, and crew. The producers are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our short film – More updates to come!!!
SPILT MILK ENTERTAINMENT, along with TEN WEST FILMS, produced the short film project entitled Poker Donkey.
Short films have quickly become the most popular category at film festivals across the world. They even compete for the coveted Oscar at the Academy Awards. It’s our belief that Poker Donkey will be such a contender. This path will allow us to eventually make Poker Donkey into a full-length feature film.
Production of our short film began on November 13, 2012 with writers Roger and Laura Ranney serving as producers along with producer Britt George. Shooting took place in Los Angeles. Post production was completed in February 2014. This put us right on target for the 2014 film festival season, the optimal venues to generate critical attention for new independent films.
