New Southern Kentucky Film Commission Showcases First Movie

Southern Kentucky Film Commission

The Southern Kentucky Film Commission is celebrating its first major achievement this weekend with two free showings of a Hallmark film produced with assistance from the new organization.

The commission’s president, Terry Martin, said he hopes the events surrounding the movie “An Uncommon Grace” will inspire young Kentuckians to consider a career in the film industry.

“We feel like this is a good location and we have a lot of people calling from Hollywood about wanting to do movies in Kentucky, basically because of Kentucky’s legislature passing tax incentives for movies to come to Kentucky.”

Martin said four counties that launched the organization - Barren, Edmonson, Hart and Warren – have received state incentives encouraging film production in their region.

The local premiere of “An Uncommon Grace” will be will be shown Friday, March 24, at 6:30 p.m. at the old Horse Cave Theater on Main Street.

On Saturday, members of the cast and crew of the film will speak with students from local schools beginning at 2 p.m., followed by a showing of the film at the Plaza Theater in Glasgow.

The public is invited to both free previews of the film.
