More than a win at Doc Sunback Film Festival

doc sunback wifi at rock bottom 2016 award

Sooooooo I am more than happy to say that it feels pretty good to win an award especially one that was of the people! Doc Sunback Film Festival and Art Crawl in Mulvane, Ks was such an incredible experience. Having been to other film festivals I can  say this one may be one of my favorites outside of obvious reasons. The interaction was just genuine and felt like a town full of love and not just this class structure of pretentiousness that can rear its ugly head in any event involving the arts. It felt like all those days in school where a random moment in making art turned into a discussion of moments.

Much love to all the people at the Doc Sunback Film Festival of Mulvane Kansas for choosing not one but two of our films for its event. With multiple screenings, I hope many of you locals in the Mulvane area can make time to catch one! Wifi at Bottom : Something About Meth has been met with so much praise by those it has connected with and Evolve or Die is one of the best in the David Rickels timeline. To make it easy we provided a graphic to let you know the screening times and locations if you can make it! As the norm for an aRowe Films films screening I attend there will be all kinds of goodies for  those in attendance and maybe even a surprise appearance from one of the two subjects! Hope to see you there!

Evolve or Die #EOD : David Rickels

arowe films presents evolve or die david rickels 7

David Rickels had a chance at greatness at Bellator 97 and in 44 seconds that chance would become more elusive due to a loss to midwest rival Micheal Chandler. More than a year later the man who robbed Rickels of winning the Bellator Lightweight Title now stands in the way. November 6 at Bellator 145 in Missouri, David Rickels will seek vengeance against Chandler to show everyone who is the best in the mid-west and make the  next step in his evolution. Training like never before and better than he has ever been, David Rickels is looking to smash another opponent and make his way to the Bellator top spot for the title against Will Brooks.#EOD

We are very happy to announce that our latest short film with Wichita’s mixed martial arts superstar David ” Caveman” Rickels has  been picked to screen at the 2015 Tallgrass Film Festival. What makes this exciting is its a local story being told at a major film festival that’s hosted in the same city! Caveman Evolved is just the latest story with Rickels and us with maybe more to come. ;-). It will screen as part of a 4 day film festival and show on day 3 at the Roxy Downtown in Wichita Saturday October 17th at 930am part of the shorts program. I know its kind of early but we have a nice little treat for those of you who make it out.

If you find the director Lester “LD” Rowe at the screening he will be giving away 30 special edition DVDs of Caveman Evolved with an added bonus film included and an autographed postcard by David Rickels.
