Hollywood’s hottest Feature Film and Television stars, producers, writers, showrunners, and other industry celebrities will be joining some of the biggest names in Music to attend the Nashville premiere of the feature film "Fishbowl" on January 3, 2019.

The event will feature a screening of "Fishbowl" for press and an intimate Q&A with the film’s acclaimed Directors, brother and sister duo Stephen Kinigopoulos and Alexa “Alexa King” Kinigopoulos, and celebrated Executive Producer George Pelecanos (Emmy nominated television writer and producer of "The Wire," "Treme," and "The Pacific," and co-creator of HBO’s hit series "The Deuce").

A tension-filled, visceral journey, "Fishbowl" beckons viewers to, "enter the world of the Simon family for a ride that will leave you short of breath and shaken—the intersection between lies, truth, faith...and fear.” The film met with immediate and critical acclaim at the prestigious Austin Film Festival as a noted feature in the event’s landmark 25th Anniversary programming.

Already recognized as tastemaking visionary creatives and the sought-after “go to” music video production team for Grammy-winning artists Kacey Musgraves, Joy Williams, and other top-selling music acts, the Kinigopoulos siblings wanted to bring their big cinema world to their new studio home—Nashville, Tennessee—to kick-off the feature film’s engagement schedule.

“We are happy to provide this look into our world of feature film and television —what we do every day—in an intimate setting,” says "Fishbowl" Co-Director Stephen Kinigopoulos.

Continuing to divide their respective schedules between film locations around the world, Stephen and Alexa selected Nashville as the home for their production studio, Running Bear Films. Stephen adds, “We’re proud to plant our business flag in Nashville and hope to help the city attract more of the type of feature projects we produce in other states so big-budget films and tv shows will come to Tennessee.”

The other half of the dynamic co-director team, Alexa Kinigopoulos, states, “Nashville welcomed us with open arms— the music artists, labels, management companies, marketing agencies—but most of all the people we run into everyday are amazing! I am so excited to begin 2019 with so many upcoming shoots here!”

The "Fishbowl" press screening and Directors’ Q&A will be held at 7pm at the legendary Franklin Theatre on January 3, 2019.
