Easton's World Premiere
The official debut of "Easton's Article" will be at the 38th Annual Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF). The film will be screened Friday, June 8th at 6:30pm and Saturday, June 9th at 11:30am at SIFF Cinema Uptown in Seattle, WA.
During the SIFF event "Easton's Article" will also be included in The New American Cinema competition, one of the most eagerly awaited programs in the festival, and represents films that the festival programmers feel are among the best US films of the festival.
The New American Cinema competition is a juried competition featuring a selection of US films without domestic distribution currently in place. Each is chosen based on their original conception, striking style and overall excellence, and the jury is comprised of members of the foreign press, the FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics). SIFF is only one of 4 US festivals with a FIPRESCI Jury, and the winner will be announced at the Golden Space Needle Awards Brunch on June 10. In previous years, competitors in The New American Cinema competition have included such films as Oscar Best Picture nominee "Winter's Bone."
We are thrilled to announce that most of the key players in the making of "Easton's Article" will be present at the World Premiere Screening. Rounding out the cast, the two lead actors, Chad Meyer (Easton) and Kristina Johnson (Hayley), will be present. Representing the crew will be, Tim Connery (writer/director/producer), JEB Metzger (producer), Joe Scherrman (exec producer), Neal Kapp (exec producer), Tricia Behnke (Associate Producer), Jackson Cooper Gango (cinematographer), and Michael Zak (editor) will also be attending the screening.
“What a fantastic way to start the film festival circuit and we look forward to bringing it home to the amazing Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in 2013," states an excited Tim Connery.
