Ever heard of a “pinch-me” moment? I definitely had one last month when I was given the tough assignment of attending the 19th Nantucket Film Festival (NFF) to promote Tervis as the festival’s official drinkware.
The festival ran June 26- 30 with over 100 showings. Films from cool indies like Arlo & Julie to insightful documentaries like Honest Liar and fabulous feature films starring Elisabeth Moss (The One I Love) and Ethan Hawke (Boyhood).
NFF has an impressive group of board members, including MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, NBC’s Brian Williams, actor Ben Stiller, and Sarasota’s very own Mark Famiglio.
