Beaufort Int'l Film Festival 2012

This past weekend, Shag Nation premiered at the 6th Annual Beaufort International Film Festival in Beaufort, SC to an audience of family, friends, supporters, and Shaggers! Our film had more online ticket sales than any other film at BIFF!

 Following the screening, The Beaufort Shag Club put on a spectacular demonstration of the Shag by their junior members as well as adults, including surprise guest, Queen of Shag, Ellen Taylor!

The Awards Ceremony was the following everning and, though Shag Nation did not take home any awards, the film that did win Best Documentary as well as Audience Choice, Awaken the Dragon by Charleston filmmaker Liz Oakley, is absolutely worth checking out. Very inspirational!

Thank you, Ron Tucker, Rebecca, and your entire festival team for putting on an outstanding festival and for making us feel so welcome!

Thanks, too, to Dave Olszewski and the Beaufort Shag Club for bringing the Shag to life on stage for our audience!

And an extra special THANK YOU to everyone who attended our screening and participated in the Q&A!

Here's hoping there will be many more festivals for us in the future!
