KimberlyBahama Hustle and Bahama Hustle II were produced by Breakaway Films, and are being distributed by Lions Gate Entertainment. The first film features Courage Band on its soundtrack, and the second film marks the feature film debut of Briland's own Chang Imlach. The website at courageband.com should be updated shortly to note when and where the films will be distributed nationwide, but their premiere will coincide with the Bahamas One World Film Festival in Nassau this coming November.
