‘The Mirror’ Earns Top Film Award

FLORENCE – “The Mirror,” a film produced entirely in the Shoals area, was the winner of Chicks with Flicks Film Fest at the Pioneer Theater in New York.

Director, producer and writer Tonya S. Holly received a film grant, courtesy of Kodak Film, after the screening August 5.

“ This is such a great honor for me,” Holly said. “It is truly a work of heart and was a total combined effort from everyone involved.”
Holly also said that she could not have achieved this without the full support of her cast, crew and the Shoals community. Over 100 businesses were utilized, as well as over 100 cast and crew.

“The Mirror” was inspired by Holly’s grandparents’ first piece of furniture called the wedding dresser. The story follows a newlywed couple and their six daughters, covering a time span of 1935 to modern day. It was at locations around the Shoals.

Her next film entitled “When I Find the Ocean” starring Louis Gossett Jr., Naomi Judd, Richard Tyson and David Keith is scheduled to start shooting in September in the Shoals area.
