An Evening with the Late Rounders Dec 15, 2011
On Friday November 18th, DCIFF and Bloombars offered festival fans an encore screening of DCIFF 2011’s hit documentary, Late Rounders–The Long Hard Road to the NFL. This inspiring film follows three graduating college football players (and their dedicated agents) on NFL draft day as they wait and hope to be offered a spot on a team’s 53-man roster.
The film, which won both the audience award for best documentary and the best local director award at the 2011 festival, is anticipated to reappear on the small screen as a reality show featuring its original production team – director Evan Marshall, Editor Steve Kobren and Producer Jim Nabti – all of whom attended Friday’s event.
After the screening, the trio led a lively panel discussion which progressed into a series of informal chats with fans and industry professionals at a reception in Bloombars’ exhibition gallery. We look forward to seeing more of these talented filmmakers’ creations on both the big and small screens in the very near future.
