The films feature Hall, as well as the founders of Nostalgic Musiq, Wayne Jr. and Davis and other local actors and actresses.
Hall said the films, which will be shown to the public for the first time, are all unique.
“All of them are just theirs, very original,” she said. “And I think they’re very cool too.”
Davis described the event as a perfect opportunity for people with similar interests to host an event the community can be a part of.
“It’s good to see the team effort and the solidarity,” he said. “And we wanted to make sure we promote that in the form of entertainment.”
The trio said the next step is to take their films to other cities.
âI feel like this is a great opportunityâ¦ to see something like this happening here in Meridian, Mississippi,â Hall said.
