Hello, Friends! It has been such a long time since I posted a blog. So much has happened. It would be impossible to catch up. So, I'll time warp back to just a couple weeks ago when I attended the Deep in the Heart Film Festival in Waco, TX which was the last film festival screening of our short film “Priyanath.”
Our film had a wonderful festival run and it was nice to end that run at Deep in the Heart, a remarkable new film festival that is close to home in more ways than one. During my time in Waco, I met talented filmmakers, hung with the locals, saw films that made me say "wow," explored the city's history and cuisine, hit up touristy Magnolia where I stocked up on sugary goodness from Silos Bakery and I even found a little time to work on my red carpet poses which I don't think I have down quite yet. (Are there classes for that?)
A big shout out to Samuel Thomas and Louis Hunter, Co-Directors of the Deep in the Heart Film Festival, for putting together a wonderful festival experience. I can’t wait to return next year.
Now even though the “Priyanath” film festival days are over, you may still be able to catch the film at theaters around the world as part of the Women in Film and Television Film (WIFTI) Showcase. Yep! We are super excited to report that the film was selected amongst numerous other film submissions to represent the work of women filmmakers around the world. We are honored to be a part of this amazing showcase.
The Origin of Priyanath
Some of you may know the film “Priyanath” was inspired by a story found within the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi” written by Paramahansa Yogananda. Published in 1946, the book has sold millions of copies, been translated into forty-eight languages and inspired countless individuals worldwide. I find myself continually inspired by the book and the Kriya Yoga teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. I invite you to come learn more about the man and the teachings first hand at the free lecture and meditation event “Finding Peace Through Meditation” held at 7pm, Wednesday, April 11th at Unity of Dallas. Feel free to bring a friend. All are welcome to attend! Learn more at www.meditationevent.com.
Until next time!
Peace and Love,
