We wish Brent Kirkland the best of luck as he represents the DFP in RiverRun’s 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). The winning pitches will be screened at the Festival.
