  • Hollywood actor, producer and author James Craigmiles will be in Hermann Saturday, June 21, for the Missouri premier of his new short film, “Right Side/Blind Side.”
    Craigmiles, a former resident of Belle, will hold a meet-and-greet at the city park in Hermann from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
    During this time he will be filming a promotional video for an upcoming book release and invites anyone interested in being a part of the project to attend. Children are welcome and encouraged to play baseball.
    From 1-3:30 p.m. he will sign copies of his book, “First, Last, Only…” at the Showboat Theatre located at 112 E. Fourth St. in Hermann. He also will do a reading of the first few chapters.
    Craigmiles will have the second edition of his book available for purchase. This event will be free and open to the public.
    At 4:30 p.m. the movie, “Right Side/Blind Side” will be shown followed by a quick behind-the-scenes film. A Q&A with Craigmiles will be at the end, and audience members will be asked to fill out a questionnaire where they can offer feedback on the film.
    The cost for the movie is $10 and proceeds will be used to submit the film to more festivals world-wide. The movie is rated R for language and violence.
    The movie description is: “Of all the obstacles on the road to happiness, prejudice can be the most devastating. When the full weight of what must be sacrificed for his dreams to come true is revealed to him, Andrew must make a decision that will affect those that love him the most. In this story, the lives of four men become entwined in a search for love, acceptance, and equality.”
    Craigmiles is also scouting locations in Missouri for his next feature length film, which will be based on his book, “First, Last, Only…”
