Congrats to Fort Worth writer-director Tom Huckabee for winning ”Best Narrative Feature” at this weekend’s seventh annual Oxford Film Festival in Mississippi for his dark comedy ”Carried Away.” (“The Scenesters,” co-starring the Keller, TX-raised actor-writer Kevin Brennan, took runner-up in that competition).

“Carried Away,” shot in Tarrant County and the California desert, follows a young director (Gabriel Horn) who returns home from California to rescue his stroke-patient grandmother (Juli Erickson) from her nursing home “prison” and the clutches of his dysfunctional Texas family. The film’s score was provided by local twisted Americana faves The Theater Fire.
