Dublin author Elaine Fields Smith
Dublin author Elaine Fields Smith earned more accolades last week for “Ridin’, Ropin’ and Jumpin’ Over Cars,” a documentary she made using information she compiled while writing the book of the same name about Dublin rodeo legend Virginia Reger.
The film was awarded Best Rodeo Film while Smith earned the Directors’ Choice Award for Best Female Filmmaker at the Sunny Side Up Film Festival in Aardmore, Oklahoma.
The film had previously won best documentary at the Culdee Arts Reel Entertainment Awards in West Virginia and the Wild Bunch Film Festival in Arizona.
It is also nominated for best documentary and best documentary director at the Twister Alley Film Festival in Woodward, Oklahoma in May.
