Indeed, the Baltimore filmmaker has hit film festivals in Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Lisbon and Berlin, along with several U.S. cities to promote his third movie “I Used to Be Darker.”
The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and showed this month at the Nashville Film Festival, where it won the Best Original Song award. Porterfield also won the Best Director Award this month at the Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival. “Darker” tells the story of Taryn, a runaway Irish teen who lands in the Baltimore home of her aunt and uncle, just as they are divorcing.
