Hey Scenesters. I am tired after having such a great time with filmmakers and the amazing volunteer crew of the fest, so I am going to make this short tonight but I wanted to let you know how the fest ended!

After a long weekend of festivities, Tupelo Film Festival wrapped tonight with the awards ceremony and afterparty. But before that, a much larger audience than the first few days came out to see the final films. It was nice to see some seats filled! After the final film, Greetings From the Shore played, Frank Vitolo announced the winners.
