The Mississippi BBQ Trail is happy to be a sponsor of the Grenada Afterglow Film Festival, coming October 3rd, 2015. The Old Square in downtown Grenada is blocked off for a day of film, fine art, music and food as actors, directors, and film makers gather to show their work. Many professional musicians and artists have chosen to be part of the 2015 Edition of the Grenada Afterglow Film Festival and you will want to enjoy this great event too! Follow their story online here: Facebook.
The Festival Directors are Isabella and Katrina Kinder of Grenada. Their experience in making short films and the recognition they gained from participating in film festivals around the state inspired the development and design for Afterglow.
