Ash Distribution and Festival Schedule

The Ash team is thrilled to announce they’ve partnered for distribution with Network Ireland Television. NITV was the distributor for the 2015 and 2016 Academy Award-Winning Live Action Short Films.

In addition, this month the film was accepted into two Academy Award-Qualifying Film Festivals: the Rhode Island International Film Festival and HollyShorts Film Festival

Joanna Castle Miller attended the Los Angeles premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre and, following the premiere, participated in a Women in Film talkback. Photos of the event below.

Ash is a fictionalized retelling of a series of interviews Joanna Castle Miller conducted in the heart of coal country. It shows how the unsafe and unregulated disposal of coal ash led to widespread death and disease in a small coal mining community.
