Sergio profiled this film in May 2011, asking if any of you would actually want to see it, based on the trailer that was embedded within the post. 

It didn't quite catch on, but it looks like execs at Indie distribution company Screen Media Films feels strongly enough in its potential that they've acquired the film to release as 1 of 7 titles on its 2012 theatrical slate, which was unveiled today.

We'll know more soon, I'm sure.

Directed by Damon Russell from a script penned by Chris Knittel and Curtis Snow, Snow On Tha Bluff's synopsis reads:

The Story of Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer, Curtis Snow, who stole a camera from some college kids in a dope deal and made a documentary about his life.

The question of course is whether it's real, as in a documentary or docu-drama, or whether it's a *fake* or a mockumentary in the same mold as those Hollywood hoax flicks like Paranormal Activity and The Last Exorcism?

I dunno... I haven't seen it.

Snow On Tha Bluff premiered at last year's Slamdance Film Festival, and later screened at the Atlanta Film Festival, so I'm sure Charles Judson has seen it. Whadaya say about it Charles? :)

It's been reported that at its Atlanta Film Festival screening, some audience members were unsure of the authenticity of a scene in which a kid puts his hands into a pile of cocaine with a razor blade in it, causing a bit of a public raucus, which lead to a police investigation.

Hmmm... fact, or all just part of the ruse?

Regardless, others will get to see it when it's released sometime later this year. A specific date hasn't been announced yet. 

In the meantime, watch the trailer below if you haven't already seen it:
