Granada Theater says
Rack Focus Film Competition will be partnering with The Granada Theatre for Round 2 of their Red-Carpet Premiere Showcase. Created by Dallas independent filmmaker Israel Luna, the competition has quickly grown into one of the bigger film competitions in North Rack Focus began in May 2015 and unlike other film competitions, it would give contestants not 24 or 48 hours but 3 months to complete their project. “A short deadline give filmmakers a reason to have a mediocre project,” Luna says.

“Giving them 3 months will help make their project that much better.” Luna is hoping the competition will also bring more attention to the DFW area with regards to filmmaking. “When people think about a film industry in Texas they think Austin. We have tons of talented filmmakers and actors here in Dallas.

Rack Focus also hopes to build a sense of collaboration with its Pitch Session; where potential contestants have 2 minutes on microphone to pitch their idea to a room full of actors, editors, composers and producers. The session then turns into a mixer where you recruit your crew.

In addition to creating Rack Focus, Luna is no stranger to the film industry as his previous film franchise The Ouija Experiment and its sequel Ouija Resurrection are currently at Redbox, Netflix, Hulu and many other distribution outlets. Ouija Experiment 3 has just been greenlit for a 2016 release. His previous films include Fright Flick which starred Breaking Bad’s Charles Baker and the new cult-classic Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives, which premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival.

Ticked-Off secured distribution through Breaking Glass Pictures and has aired on Showtime Channel and Netflix
