Dear Potential Sponsor/Film Enthusiast,

I am writing to announce that the 2019 RKDS FILM FEST will be held on July 11 – 14, 2019 in
Valdosta, GA. This four day event is expected to draw thousands to Valdosta once again.
We are also happy to have over 1500 films submitted for consideration from filmmakers
around the world guaranteeing a great lineup of movies for the 2019 RKDS FILM FEST.
Special Guests and a lots of entertainment including a special 'Film Day For Kids' are in
store for visitors. Our main film attraction will be the World Premiere of the new
documentary film, BURT REYNOLDS: The Last Film Festival.

As many of you may remember, our star lineup last year consisted of Burt Reynolds, Ricky
Shroder, Simone Griffeth, Sonny Shroyer and special promotion by Penn Jillette of the
famous magicians, Penn & Teller. Burt Reynolds was our featured guest at the 2018 RKDS
FILM FEST. Burt spoke on all three days and was absolutely fantastic. Our Honorable Mayor,
John Gayle, presented Burt with the Key to the City and declared July 12, 2018 as Burt
Reynolds Day. Our State Representative, John Lahood, presented Burt with a Resolution
from the State Legislature. Thousands of people attended to see Mr. Reynolds as news of
his visit was spread all over the media nationwide. It was indeed a historic event. Sadly,
eight weeks later, the Hollywood Legend passed away. We didn't realize that the 2018 RKDS
FILM FEST would go down in history as Burt Reynolds last film festival.

The 2019 RKDS FILM FEST, aka VALDOSTA FILM FESTIVAL, remains dedicated to
highlighting the Film Industry in South Georgia. Our mission is to grow more interest, raise
awareness and bring recognition to the Film Industry by showcasing great talent and films
from around the world with a spotlight on Valdosta. RKDS Entertainment & Media, LLC is
continuously working relentlessly to grow the Film Industry in Southern Georgia by
creating more films and inviting more filmmakers to work in our area. Our love for Film and
South Georgia were two main reasons for creating this event.  However, we will need as
much support as possible from you. Please take a look at the website / sponsorship page
and consider contributing to this amazing event.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Sincerely,

Roy Kirkland
Director RKDS FILM FEST
