Rocky Yost Signs With Film Marketing Services

Geraldine Lemay as Shopkeeper Lilly Nash
Films hardly get more mainstream Americana than Lilly's Thorn, the Capraesque tale of a shopkeeper's struggle to halt a developer who is bent on ruining a small town. Rocky Yost's feature film played to a crowded Stephen J. Buck Memorial Theater at NHFF's 2010 festival, and now Los Angeles-based producer rep Jon Gursha of Film Marketing Services is busy taking this sparkling film to a much wider audience.
