This past weekend the PureFlix exclusive release, "Until Forever," won the Audience Favorite Award at The Attic Film Festival in Austin, Texas. To add to this great achievement, “Until Forever” also won The Attic Film Festival’s Best Female Performance Award with Madison Lawlor’s performance of Michael Boyum’s girlfriend, Michelle.
"Until Forever" was produced by Linn Productions, a Rapid City-based production company owned by Carolyn Linn and sons, Michael, Marc, Eric, and Nicholas. Written and directed by Michael Linn, this Christian movie follows the heroic true story of Michael Boyum, and his courageous struggle with a rare form of leukemia. Throughout the film, Michael (played by Stephen Anthony Bailey) and Michelle’s (Madison Lawlor) relationship is filled with love and laughter and bonded by strong faith. When the young couple's dream of a future together is interrupted, they are confronted with circumstances that will test the boundaries of their commitment. Though their prayers aren’t always answered in ways expected, Michael, his family, and Michelle are triumphant in discovering God’s goodness and faithfulness.
The Attic Film Festival showed “Until forever” and other Christian movies at central Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse. On Friday evening and all day Saturday, judges and participants screened over 16 films. This year’s list included some spectacular titles, such as “Woodlawn,” “Simon Says,” and “Many Beautiful Things.” Up against this impressive roster, the Audience Choice Award was a great honor for “Until Forever.”
