"This is where film festival shit gets real: A work-in-progress screening of a indie film scrapped together by hundreds of people literally donating money or time and talent to get the thing made. And you can trust that if all of that is being done to make a film, then that film has got a lot of reasons to “live.” I know Jenni Tooley. She’s been at my fests and on my red carpets and I would be there checking this thing out and supporting her if I could. You should.", John Wildman, Festworks
STUCK will be complete in MARCH!
A ballerina with a baby and a coke habit. A regret-filled sister caught between her head and her heart. A country singer hiding out in her hometown. And at the center - one woman struggling to remember them all through the veil of her fading memories. STUCK is a grass-roots funded independent art film conceived by Jenni Tooley in 2001. After 15 years of being STUCK, Ms Tooley decided to raise money for the film herself and was able to raise $43K with the help of friends, colleagues and family in 2016 to produce the film. Over $150K of in-kind donations allowed her to produce the film over the course of 4 months on location in Dallas. 99% of the cast and crew are from Texas and the producing team consists entirely of women. Currently in post-production, STUCK is set to debut on the 2019 festival circuit.
