LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 22, 2014) – Award-winning actress and filmmaker Elizabeth Yoder, who won “Best Actor” and the Ribaut Award for “Best Short Film” at the 8th Annual Beaufort International Film Festival, has been nominated for “Best Actress” at this week’s Jersey Shore Shorts Festival. Her captivating portrayal of Grace in the original short drama, The Long Wait, was written and directed by multi-award winner Wolfgang Bodison.
Other Jersey Shore Shorts Festival nominations include “Best Short Film” and “Best Director” for Wolfgang’s dramatization, inspired by the tragic childhood events that took the life of Elizabeth’s father. Screenings have sparked high emotions, garnering Audience Choice nominations for “Best Actress”, “Best Short Film” and the Jury Choice Award for “Best Director” at the 18th Annual Playhouse West Film Festival in September 2013.
“This journey in filmmaking has been extremely gratifying. I am so grateful to see our labor of love getting this recognition,” said Elizabeth, an alumni of LA’s famed Playhouse West School and Repertory Theatre since 2004. Notable graduates include James Franco, Jeff Goldblum, Ashley Judd and others.
In addition to Elizabeth’s prolific work on stage and screen, she is the Founder of Elevating Hope, a charity that helps the bereaved transition through grief and suffering to find acceptance, forgiveness and healing when someone close dies.
Upcoming screenings of The Long Wait are scheduled at the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival at 2:30 p.m. on April 25th at Carmike Cinema; the West Chester Film Festival at 9:30 p.m. on April 25th at Knights of Columbus and 2:15 p.m. on April 26th at Boxcar Brewpub in West Chester, PA. Screening and nominations for “Best Short,” “Best Director” and “Best Actress” at the Jersey Shore Short Fest at 1:45 p.m. on April 27th in Asbury Park, NJ at The Showroom; the Hill Country Film Festival in Fredericksburg, TX, at 10:00 a.m. on May 3rd; and the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema starts at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 31st, at the Historic Hemet Theatre.

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 22, 2014) – Ending a great deal of speculation, Cirque Lodge announced today that Daryl Bullock has accepted a position as Cirque’s Senior Vice-President for Referent Relations. Mr. Bullock was the long-time Executive Director for Business Development at the Betty Ford Center and left shortly after the Center’s acquisition by Hazelden.
“Cirque Lodge has always had a stellar clinical and customer service reputation. They are an excellent brand in our industry and, most importantly for me, they seem committed to mission over margin,” Mr. Bullock said in a statement. “I am grateful for the many attractive offers I have had over the last few months, but the fact that Cirque has resisted opiate-replacement therapy in the young adult community, resisted the sale of their facility to the big corporate entities and the fact that it is owned by a sole proprietor who is not afraid to make decisions proved to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that Cirque is where I wanted to work.”
By bringing in Bullock, Cirque Lodge has signaled its intent to take on the marketing juggernauts that are the private equity firms, who many believe are seeking to dominate the treatment industry.
“Daryl Bullock has the longevity and reputation in our field that makes me proud that he would choose us over several other attractive offers,” stated Richard Losee, CEO and Founder of Cirque Lodge. “Daryl’s passion and professionalism in working with the addict and alcoholic who still suffers was evident to me from our first meeting. We as an organization feel like he is a kindred spirit and his philosophical stance on treatment resonated with me from the beginning. He is a do-the-next-right-thing individual.”
