Semi-Finalist film in the Youtube film festival - Henrico-born filmmaker

I'm really excited that a film I wrote and directed called "Sold" was chosen as a semi-finalist out of over 15,000 submissions for Ridley Scott's "Your Film Festival" -

Sold is about a young journalist who is inadvertently captured into a human trafficking ring while investigating the treatment of undocumented immigrants in America.

If our film 'Sold' is voted by the public into the top 10, I'll be flown to Venice, Italy to open the Venice International Film Festival with my film! Even more amazing, if 'Sold' wins, Scott Free Productions will award a $500,000 grant for me to make my dream movie with Ridley Scott!

I'm thrilled by the prospect of going to Venice Film Festival as a filmmaker but also to use this film as an opportunity to spurn discussions about the topic of human trafficking and to gain exposure for the cause against it.

This is the link people are using to vote. If you like the film, please VOTE!
The above link will take someone directly to the film where they can click the red "VOTE" button to the right. Voting ends on July 13th and people are allowed to vote once a day.

I love Henrico! Was born and raised, went to Douglas Freeman highschool and come back to visit my family and friends whenever I can.

Thank you for your support!

Best Regards,
John Irwin
