Winner of the audience award for Best Documentary at last year’s DCIFF, Jim Nabti and Evan Marshall’s Late Rounders followed its standing room only screening at DCIFF (which also earned director Evan Marshall the New Filmmaker Award) with a successful run at the Atlanta Film Festival and honors at the LA International Film Festival. Evan and Jim are currently transforming their award-winning documentary – which follows three college football stars and their agents while their last chance for their dreams to come true unfolds during the final round of the NFL draft – into a reality television series. The duo are making sure to keep their entire production team together so that the flavor of the original film translates to the small screen. Additionally, the team have a “super secret documentary” in the works.
