“Blaze” is coming home. Following the film’s January debut at the Sundance Film Festival and March screening at South By Southwest, the Louisiana International Film Festival is the next stop for “Blaze.” The locally shot, Ethan Hawke-directed biopic about country singer-songwriter Blaze Foley is the festival’s opening night film. The screening starts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Cinemark Perkins Rowe and XD, and it includes a Q&A with the movie’s star, Ben Dickey, and co-writer Sybil Rosen. After Thursday’s screening, Dickey will perform with his band, The Beaver Bayou Boys. “We’re super excited about the Louisiana premiere because Louisiana is the film’s spiritual home,” said Jake Seal, one the film’s producers and owner of Village Studios in Jackson. “We have a lot of local people to thank and invite to enjoy the film.” Read More here

April 13, 2018   Jules   'First Reformed', Film Festival Be first to comment

Eight days of programming begin May 3. Mr. Rogers, Alexander McQueen, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Korn get the documentary treatment.

Narrative-wise, there’s an early thread of isolated male protagonists. Paul Schrader’s First Reformed follows Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke), a lonely, middle-aged parish pastor at a small 250-year-old Dutch Reform church in upstate New York. A world premiere of Tejano tells the story of a young man who smuggles drugs across the Texas-Mexico border to pay his grandfather’s medical bills. It’s the first feature directed by Austin’s David Garcia. The Iron Orchard will see its world premiere at DIFF; it’s the tale of Jim McNeely’s quest to become a wildcatter in the 1930s West Texas oilfields, directed by Ty Roberts.

Sundance Selects has acquired U.S. rights to the music biopic “Blaze,” co-written, produced, and directed by Ethan Hawke. The film held its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, where newcomer Ben Dickey won the Special Jury Award for Achievement in Acting for his portrayal of Blaze Foley. “Blaze” is inspired by the life of Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. “Blaze” explores his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his final performance in a near-empty honky-tonk; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact that his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes.
