Fun facts from the Festival  

Bobby and Kevin Downes, producers of the Official Selection Dramatic Feature Like Dandelion Dust, first heard about author Karen Kingsbury’s work through their wives, who heard Karen speak at a women’s retreat.

Their wives pushed them to make a movie based on one of Karen’s novels and they eventually decided on Like Dandelion Dust. Karen has written 40 novels and has sold around 15 million copies of her books!

Bobby and Kevin, introducing the film at one of the screenings earlier in the week, said they are hoping to release the film nationally in either March or September of 2010 and are hoping to adapt more of Karen’s novels for the big screen in the future!
