We wish Brent Kirkland the best of luck as he represents the DFP in @RiverRunFilm's 10th Annual (Virtual) Pitch Fest Competition. 🎉⁣
⁣
Brent is pitching KEGHEAD'S LAST RIDE, a film that follows a long time beer delivery man as he and the Reno, Nevada community he serves reflect on and adapt to his career change. Told through the eyes of a son and his blue-collar dad, KEGHEAD'S LAST RIDE explores themes of identity and community as it captures a man and a city in transition.⁣
⁣
🎥 Pitch Fest is open to graduate and undergraduate student filmmakers currently working on documentary film projects. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pitch Fest will be virtual and will be held prior to the RiverRun International Film Festival (May 6–16, 2021).
