Thank You, Memphis, for Choosing "You Must Believe"

Our team sat together in Playhouse Memphis on the evening of Friday, Nov. 2, nervous as we waited for the screening of Indie Memphis Film Festival’s Hometowner Documentary Shorts competition to begin.

Three days later, we learned that we won Audience Choice for “You Must Believe.” THANK YOU, Memphis!

"You Must Believe" is our 8-minute documentary following LifeLine to Success, a organization led by an ex-offender who developed a personal creed during his prison sentence. That creed has now turned into a community and a purpose that transform the lives of other ex-offenders.

This organization is truly making change in one of the most overlooked groups of people.

Countless thank you’s to DeAndre Brown, the founder of Lifeline to Success, and LaSalle Wallace, a member of the Lifeline to Success community who had the courage to stand on stage with me during the director Q&A and share why he made this film with us.
