Signing events set for limited DVD release of ‘The Old Winter’

-A A +A

For those anxious to get their hands on a copy of “The Old Winter,” a limited DVD release will take place at two upcoming signing events in Bloomfield.

Filmmaker John A. Coulter announced late last week that he and a few of the film’s cast would be at the Bloomfield library from 1-3 p.m. June 24 and July 1.

“This is a limited release of a limited number of DVDs,” Coulter said, adding that the film is currently being sent to film festivals, and the signings are to allow locals who have supported the film and want to see it a chance to do so.

After July 1, those still interested in purchasing a copy of the film can contact Tunnell Mill Pictures at tunnellmill@gmail.com, (502) 460-2526, or follow them on Facebook for additional information.

Fans will not only have the chance to purchase a DVD, but also have their copies signed by Coulter and some of the cast.

“The Old Winter,” filmed primarily around the Bloomfield area and featuring several local actors, tells the story of Asa Bodine (Thomas Clark) who returns to his inherited farmland to rebuild his life 40 years after leaving it during the Great Depression. The film, which premiered at the Kentucky Center for the Arts in 2014 and sold out showings at Keystone Cinemas and other local theaters, exposed the community to the life and hardships of Kentucky farmers and the importance of preserving the family farm.

Clark, a teacher with Nelson County Schools, and co-star Katie Jordan, a recent Bardstown graduate, plan to attend the signing. Randall Durbin, who, along with his family, was instrumental in creating the film’s setting, is also scheduled to attend.

DVDs are $30 and only cash or credit card payment will be accepted. After the signing events, a shipping and handling fee will apply for orders that require shipping.

The Bloomfield library is located at 34 Arnold Lane.
