Crews began filming a movie called “Prayer Box” in Edmonson County this week. It’s one of several productions lured to the region since the creation of the Southern Kentucky Film Commission in October 2016 by the Hart County Fiscal Court.
The Southern Kentucky Film Commission is the recipient of the 2018 Spirit of Kentucky Award, the Department for Local Government (DLG) announced on Wednesday. The award, presented during the 43rd annual Governor’s Local Issues Conference in Louisville, is given annually to the sponsors of a public project that strengthens a community through collaboration and thoughtful use of resources, among other criteria. DLG Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo presented the award during the Governor’s Luncheon on the second day of the conference. The winning project represents an innovative and collaborative effort to diversify the economy of seven southern Kentucky counties: Barren, Christian, Cumberland, Edmonson, Hart, Monroe, Warren and Washington counties. Representatives from the counties worked together to attract filmmakers to Southern Kentucky, helping to spur regional economic development.
Bowling Green, KY: The Historic RailPark & Train Museum will host a Red Carpet Movie Showing of the independent film, Summer of ’67. Several scenes from the movie were filmed on site at the L&N Depot and feature train cars that are currently on display. Based on real life events, Summer of ’67 brings to life the turbulent times of the sixties and the struggles faced by the men and women impacted by the Vietnam War. Young wife and mother Milly is forced to live with her mother-in-law while her husband Gerald is away on the USS Forrestal. Kate must choose between Peter her high school sweetheart and Van her new hippie boyfriend. Ruby Mae finally finds true love with Reggie only to have him whisked away by the draft. Each woman faces the question of whether their man will return, and even if he does, will life as they know it ever be the same?
The movie will be shown as many as six times over two days with one showing being hosted as the 11th anniversary a museum fundraiser. A variety of show times are set for September 8th & 9th.
