Ladies and gentlemen,
I am thrilled to announce that my debut feature film BFE will be making its European debut at the American Film Festival in Wroclaw, Poland where it will compete in the Spectrum section. AFF describes these films as “a panorama of contemporary American cinema, new feature films: ‘middle cinema’, films by renowned filmmakers, new talents, interesting phenomena.”
“This competition section features a panorama of today’s American films, the best films from cinema’s new faces, intriguing discoveries and up-and-coming acting talents. Twenty films – an AFF record – will vie for the Festival Prize. In competition films include Gillian Robespierre’s Obvious Child, a bold and provocative abortion comedy starring the fab Jenny Slate, Megan Griffiths’ Lucky Them, an excellent blend of nostalgic comedy and road film (in the spirit of Sideways)about an alt-music journalist looking for a long-lost lover starring the charming Toni Collette, Lake Los Angeles, a brutally honest portrait of America as seen through foreigner’s eyes – the final instalment of Mike Ott’s Inland Empire trilogy; Thou Wast Mild and Lovely,which screened at the Berlin Film Festival, and is an disturbing thriller by Josephine Decker starring Joe Swanberg, a 1980s throwback comedy – Michael Tully’s Ping Pong Summer, with a cameo by Susan Sarandon, the vampire farce Summer of Blood by Onur Tukel, whose film Richard’s Wedding previously charmed Wrocław audiences, as well as the visually beautiful and visionary story of Abraham Lincoln’s childhood years, The Better Angels, by A. J. Edwards, who is a student of director Terrence Mallick.”
Yours truly has also been asked to DJ the closing night party.
Man, I’ve got to tell you… life is good!
And in case you missed it, we’ve got a brand new trailer:
