More on our awesome P21Fest events soon, we swear! In the meantime, we wanted to get you this breaking Festival Partner News:
Just one week after being included in P21Fest 2009′s Philadelphia Filmathon, Leon will receive an encore screening at the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival, taking place Friday, Oct. 8th – Sunday, Oct. 11th. The film was directed by the super-talented young director Andrew Kerekes, who is of Korean descent and hails from Aiea, Hawaii. Kerekes has participated in the 21-Day Competition every year since the competition’s inception in 2006.
Leon will be part of a shorts screening in PAAFF taking place Sunday, Oct. 11th at 1:00pm at (where else?) the International House Philadelphia’s Ibrahim Theater. Yep, the same venue as P21Fest, so you should already know how to get there! Other films in the screening include Blood Colony by Jason Holcomb, The Letter by Kris Mendoza, and Imprint by Van Blumreich. The screening is collectively titled “Dark”, ironic considering Leon and the Wolf was created with the 2008 secret Element (“Light”) in mind.
Project Twenty1 is proud to be co-sponsoring the “Dark” screening at PAAFF. Go check it out and support our partners at PAAFF. Tickets now available.
