So many great moments during the Nashville Film Festival 2014. Met so many wonderful film folks.
Glen Campbell's film I'LL BE ME and a wonderful film ALIVE INSIDE, A STORY OF MUSIC AND MEMORY, about music bringing memories back to Alzheimer patients... won the Music Doc and Film awards, and deservedly so.
It was an honor to JUST be involved with the festival. Rex Jones film Beautiful Jim received bountiful belly laughs, a few wet eyes, three rounds of applause and a standing ovation! I could not ask for more.
Thank you God for allowing me to live to witness such an outpouring of love and acceptance. Thank you Rex for taking the time and the care to tell my story so beautifully. Thanks to my friends and family for coming out and supporting the cause and to my sweet Brenda... I would not be here without your love and support.
Funny... I laughed for fifteen minutes when Rex told me what he decided to name my documentary... if I had to pick two words to describe my life... BEAUTIFUL JIM... would not have been my first thought. Crazy Jim, Wild Jim, Sensitive, brave, loving, caring, Funny Jim... but Beautiful? Oh well, I did say there was nothing pretty about BO! So BEAUtiful Jim it is.
