On this Day in Movie History, June 23, 2012: Jaxon Film Fest Launches New Website

It was on this day, June 23, 2012, the Jaxon Film Fest launched its new website. Although a work in progress, it is the first for the film fest.

Says director David W. King, “With only three months left until this year’s festival (its first), it is exciting to see these developments. What we would truly like is to see people in this community become involved with the festival. We would be truly excited if this event proved a success. With the line-up of films we have received, we are confident it will be.”

In the months watch as the festival adds to its website a schedule of films for this coming fest, ways in which you can support the fest, icons of this year’s sponsors, locations to buy tickets, a map of participating venues which will become part of this year’s festival, a map of parking for the festival, awards, photos, etc.
