LOS ANGELES, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand Entertainment Group (GEG) is proud to announce the multi-award winning film JUNCTION has been nominated in the feature film category in the 18th Annual PRISM Awards; produced by the Entertainment Industries Council (EIC) which honors accurate storytelling around mental health and substance use issues.
JUNCTION is written and directed by award winning writer Tony Glazer, recipient of the prestigious L. Arnold Weissberger Award, and stars David Zayas (Dexter); Oscar® nominated Michael O'Keefe (Michael Clayton); Anthony Rapp (Rent); Anthony Ruivivar (Cinemax's "Banshee"); Neal Bledsoe (Revolutionary Road); 2-Time Daytime Emmy Award Winner Tom Pelphrey (Guiding Light); Harris Doran (My Best Day) Summer Crockett Moore (Law & Order) ; Sharon Maguire (Off Season) and Danielle Kotch (Person of Interest).
