AWARD WINNING FILM FILMED IN WARREN

 

Jake Mahaffy's latest film WELLNESS  recently won SXSW. The film won the Grand Jury Award in the Narrative Competition there at SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX.  SXSW is touted as one of the most significant independent film festival occurring in the United States at this time.  WELLNESS was filmed here in Warren, PA and our city played numerous roles.  Indeed Warren was one of the cast.  The film has been well received since its World Premiere at International Film Festival Rotterdam in January 2008.  Filmed entirely in Warren with a cast from Warren, well OK there was a few folks from out of town.   Nevertheless it is a Warren film.   No doubt of that fact.  The cast needs introduced before going any further. so as it appeared in the film credits.
