Driven, starring Richard Speight, Jr. and directed by Glenn Payne, has won the Award for “Best Feature Narrative” at the Crossroads Film Festival. The movie, filmed in Tupelo, was screened this weekend at the festival which “celebrates the art of film in Mississippi in all its diversity and depth.”

According to the Crossroads Film Festival website, over 350 films were submitted to the festival this year, and only 100 were accepted. Driven was screened on Saturday April 13 as part of the festival’s “Driven and More Tales of Horror” event.

The film also stars Casey Dillard, who wrote the script. Billed as a thriller/comedy, IMDb.com describes the film as the following:

Emerson Graham’s nights as a cab driver are filled with annoyances and inconveniences, but until tonight, never attacks and disappearances. After picking up a mysterious passenger her evening goes from working a job to performing a quest as they must race against the clock to defeat a force of evil. The meter is running.
