SciFi Adventure TIME TRAP Takes Home Jury Prize at Hollywood Film Festival

On Saturday Night, Hollywood icon Ed Asner presented award-winning Texas directors Mark Dennis and Ben Foster with the Jury Prize for "Most Innovative Narrative Feature" at the 20th Annual Hollywood Film Festival, which they accepted for their film, TIME TRAP. The event was held at Paramount Pictures and attended by Time Trap cast members Cassidy Gifford (The Gallows), Reiley McClendon (Pearl Harbor), Brianne Howey (The Exorcist Series), Max Wright (Freaks of Nature) and producer Zachary Matz (City Island).

Festival CEO Brad Parks said, "Time Trap looks like an early Spielberg movie and takes the audience through a suspenseful and fun adventure that leaves people feeling good about the future of our world... and these innovative and exceptional young filmmakers certainly left us all feeling very inspired about the future of Hollywood."

Time Trap follows a group of archaeology students searching for their professor who has disappeared while exploring a mysterious cave in rural Texas. When the students become trapped underground, they discover a rift in the space-time-continuum causes time to pass differently inside the cave.
