Hayseed Premieres At Pottstown PA Premiere

poster_012.jpgThe movie Hayseed will be featuring at the first ever Pottstown Film Fest later this week.

The event is two days long, with the opening night being dedicated to short films.  Hayseed closes out the second evening of entertainment.

For those that don’t know, and their can’t be many of you, Pottstown is a borough of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania in the US of A.  All of you Cold Case fans really should know this as it is around 30 miles (45km) outside Philadelphia :-)

The film festival is the brain child of actor and Pottstown native, Kyle Klaus.  He both acted in and is a producer on Hayseed.  The festival is part of the Manhattan Short 2023 event which, despite the name, takes place in venue all over America.

Kyle’s previous acting credits include drama the series The Blacklist and FBI.  He is starring in an upcoming movie called Ballad Of A Hustler, due to première in a Brazilian film festival next week, and a short film called Roundabout which opens an upcoming film festival in Pottstown.

Hang on a minute!!!  You mean this man has created a new film festival in his home town and the first and last films to feature are ones he is in!?  Fair play to the man.

Not surprisingly Kyle will be making an appearance at his own festival, notably in a Q&A with Hayseed writer/director Travis Burgess after the film’s screening on Friday night.

Hayseed Trailer For CCFF 2023

hayseed_trailer_1_018Following on from the previous post about the movie Hayseed being shown at the Capital City Film Festival in Michigan, the makers have said it will be a closing night event and they released a trailer for the film.

The CCFF 2023 is due to take place from early April, so only about 3 weeks away now.

The Hayseed CCFF 2023 trailer can be seen HERE.  Of course, Kathryn makes a few brief appearances.  You get a general tone of the movie from the trailer, as I guess you are supposed to do.  Looks like an interest film, with a few funny bits and some elements a bit towards the Fargo-style of things.  I look forward to seeing it one day.

A few screencaps of Kathryn from the trailer have been added to the Gallery.

Hayseed Selected For Capital City Film Festival 2023

poster_008.jpgThis early part of the year is often called Awards Season.  Lots of ceremonies happen around now.  We’ve already had the Golden Globes (television & films), the Grammys (music).  Last weekend it was the movie BAFTAs in the UK.  Tomorrow (26th Feb) it will be the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which we’ve seen Kathryn attend before.  Soon it will be the 2023 Oscars, which will be considered very dull unless there is a full-on punch-up.  And that’s just the entertainment industry!  We’ve not mentioned any sports or computer games events to name just two more.

Here on KM UK it is more like Festival Season.

The latest news on the new movie Hayseed, in which Kathryn has a small role, is another film festival appearance.

The independent crime thriller/mystery/comedy has been official selected for the Capital City Film Festival 2023.  The CCFF takes place in Lansing, Michigan in the US of A across 11 days in the first half of April.  Lansing, which many may not realise is the state capital city of Michigan is around 60 miles (110km) west of the better known Detroit.

Details on screening times have not been announced yet, nor a complete set of films due to be shown.  We’ll certainly bring those to you when we can.  Tickets allowing access to the whole event are available already.

More details on the CCFF 2023 festival can be seen on their website HERE.

Hayseed In The UK!

poster_001.jpgA missed opportunity.

In my checking details of for the previous post about Hayseed being part of the AHITH later this month, I stumbled across a bit of interesting news.

Apparently, Hayseed was screened during the Derby Film Festival back in mid-November.  Not only that but the director Travis Burgess was present and took part in a Q&A session.  It is possible that this was in effect the première festival showing by the film.

For our international readers, Derby is a city in the centre of England, best known for the home of Rolls Royce jet engines and a lot of train engineering works.

If only I had known this was happening before hand I would have made the effort to try and attend the event.  That would have been a first for this website.

The festival’s website has the following description of the film:

A dark comedy murder-mystery set in a small American Midwest town, where detective Leo Hobbins (Bill Sage) is left to investigate a murder, when the local reverend is found dead in the baptismal font leaving Hobbins to depend on the band of offbeat residents in the town including the local gossip Joyce (Kathryn Morris, Cold Case)and the gullible Duck (Jack Falahee, How To get Away With Murder) to assist with the investigation.

Hayseed At Another Hole In The Head

poster_004.jpgIn a couple of weeks time, the new movie Hayseed will be getting an airing courtesy of the 2022 Another Hole In The Head film festival.

For those that need a catch-up (this site certainly does!), Hayseed is a new independent crime thriller/mystery/comedy in which Kathryn has a small role.  See the previous KM UK post about it HERE.

The San Francisco-based AHITH festival is primarily horror-focused but they do venture in to sci-fi and other genres as they see fit.

Hayseed has been added to the official selection for the 2022 running of the event.  However, as far as I can tell the film is not being screened in a theatre setting, but rather only via an online stream.  This appears to be limited to members and is also geo-locked to the California area and will be available over the 3 days from the 16th-18th December 2022.

For more details on the AHITH festival see their website HERE.

If you are able to view the film, please do report back to us.

The poster you see to the right (large version in the Gallery) gives us a glimpse of Kathryn in character.
