FILM FEST KNOX Award Winner to Have Theatrical Release

June 3, 2024

We were delighted to welcome producers Robert Colom and Tristan Scott-Behrends to Knoxville for a screening of Mountains. The competition jury awarded the film a special prize for the performances of the ensemble cast. Congrats to the Mountains team for getting their beautiful film onto screens nationwide.

Mountains has loomed large since we caught it at TIFF,” said Brian Andreotti, Head of Acquisitions for Music Box Films. “It’s the kind of truly independent American film that we love to support and elevate at Music Box Films: it’s a portrait of a particular family in a specific community, but that human-scaled drama illuminates issues of gentrification and displacement that impact neighborhoods across the country. Monica and Robert make the boundaries of a backyard in Little Haiti feel as wide as the whole world.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the Music Box team to bring Mountains to audiences,” said the film’s co-writer and producer Robert Colom. “Music Box’s place as a bridge between foreign and American independent cinema is a perfect match for our film, and we’re excited for the team’s great care and excellent eye to amplify the story of this family, and the spirit of Little Haiti.”
