Local filmmakers to premiere documentary about DC hot dog industry at Austin Film Fest

Laura Waters Hinson and Kasey Kirby took to Kickstarter earlier this year to complete production of their documentary, DOG DAYS.

The film followed one hot-dog vendor and and unemployed engineer with an idea to help D.C.'s hot-dog sellers compete with food trucks.

Trouble brews when the vendors run up against labyrinthine rules and regulations.

After the filmmakers reached their goal of $30,000 earlier this year, they were able to finish editing, sound design, music, and the graphics.

The film is set to make its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival next month.

"We can't believe our film will be screened amidst other fantastic films from directors such as the Coen Brothers, Steve McQueen and many others," the filmmakers said in an e-mail to Kickstarter backers. "Many of you are probably wondering when we'll be hosting our DC premiere...We will let you know as soon as we decide when/where we will be premiering in the District.  We want our hometown premiere to be as big an event as possible, so we will plan carefully.  Please let us know if you have an idea or a contact that might help us in this process!  Stay tuned for details!"
