The World Premiere of James Franco’s latest film collaboration Yosemite, directed by Gabrielle Demeestere will close Slamdance Film Festival on Thursday, January 29th, 2015.
Slamdance Film Festival announced the latest edition of its “Coffee With” events featuring independent film champion James Franco, followed by a Special Screening of his latest film collaboration Yosemite, directed by Gabrielle Demeestere and a Rabbit Bandini Production. This unique program will close Slamdance’s 21st festival on Thursday, January 29th, 2015 and will be the World Premiere of Yosemite, a film that chronicles the intertwining tales of three 5th grade friends which unfold in the suburban paradise of Palo Alto, as the threat of a mountain lion looms over the community.
Slamdance’s “Coffee With” events aim to discuss the various ways to sustain a successful filmmaking career from the guests’ personal experiences in their fields. “Coffee With…James Franco” will look at the actor and producer’s prolific independent film work, including his new production of Yosemite. Past “Coffee With” guests have included Chad Hurley & the Russo Brothers, Jonathan Demme & Neil Young, Ted Hope, and Vilmos Zsigmond.
“We are thrilled to have such a talented and passionate supporter of independent film sit down and share his knowledge and experience with the Slamdancefilmmakers,” states Anna Germanidi, Festival Director.
The 2015 Slamdance Film Festival will take place from January 23rd – 29th, 2015 in Park City, Utah at the Treasure Mountain Inn, located at 255 Main Street, Park City, UT 84060.
