In a remarkable development of events, my quaint little film LIPSTICK LIES has been selected to screen at 2013 Big Island Film Festival in the latter half of May. The film is partially shot in Hawaii (on the island of O’ahu) and features plenty of material for the locals out there to be flipping happy about.
Of course the film is also partially shot right here in New York City as well as Philadelphia, although we haven’t yet explored screening in Philly at this point, perhaps after the BIFF screening we’ll look into it. We recently screened in Williamsburg Brooklyn, at the first annual Philip K. Dick Science-Fiction Film Festival and have submissions out to other NYC based film festivals.
The Big Island Film Festival will be held from May 23 – May 27 at the Mauna Lani Resort and feature films from around the world. More info to come and will likely be posted on the film’s Facebook page and Festival Portal. The film stars Samantha Rivers Cole & Matthew Krob with music by Omer Ben-Zvi.
Last night LIPSTICK LIES screened with the PHILIP K DICK SCIENCE FICTION FILM FESTIVAL at IndieScreen in New York City and Film Anthropology was there to support the filmmakers. Here is a link to some of the photos from the screening, including movie director Eric Norcross with the film cast: Samantha Rivers Cole, Gerard Adimando and Bill Woods among other attendees including Manhattan Film Festival Director Phil Nelson and actor Dan Shor (Tron, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure). All showed up for the PKD exhibition of this film.
