Local, National Media Turn Out for Premiere of Film Foundry’s “The Ultimate Gift” in CharlotteThursday, August 5th, 2010
On March 7, 2007, the Film Foundry brought a little Hollywood to Charlotte when it rolled out the red carpet for the premiere of its second feature film, “The Ultimate Gift.” The event took place at the Phillips Place Theatre following a VIP reception in the nearby Hampton Inn.
The movie made news for weeks prior to and following the premiere. The impressive movie cast was the first of many reasons for the media attention. The movie stars 2006 Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin from “Little Miss Sunshine.” In addition, Breslin worked alongside some of the industry’s biggest names, including James Garner, Brian Dennehy, Bill Cobbs, and Lee Meriwether, together with rising stars Ali Hillis – originally from Charlotte – and Drew Fuller.
