The Coin @ Northeast Film Festival

northeast_film_festival_logo_330x330The Northeast Film Festival in New Jersey USA has released their schedule for the 2016 running of the event.

So we can now confirm what the writer/director Fabien Martorell had already mentioned:  his short film The Coin will be screened on Sunday, the 11th of September

The Teaneck Cinemas in Teaneck township of Bergen County will be hosting a group of eleven short films (two described as being as little as 1 minute long) from 2pm.

The Christopher Lloyd (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and Kathryn starring film is listed as being the last of the set in a slot that could be as much as 2 hours long in to.  Tickets are available via the official event website HERE from $12.

As is often the case at these festivals there is a closing gala with a collection of awards covering such areas as acting, directing and screenplay for features and shorts.  Sadly The Coin‘s only nod is for Christopher in the ‘Best Actor In A Short’ category.  He competes with fellow nominees Lance Henrikson (his slightly less zany alter ego?) and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost).  The ‘Best Actress In A Short’ is missing Kathryn but does include luminaries Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and Lost‘s Sonya Walger.  Henry and Sonya are both up for a short called Visible.

N.E. More Festivals For The Coin?

northeast_film_festival_logo_330x330Reports of The Coin being spent have been greatly exaggerated.

There haven’t been such reports but I’ve got to open the post with something :-)

Back in 2012, just over four years ago in fact, we first heard of this short film by writer/director Fabien Martorell and starring Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) and Kathryn.

Despite the length of time that’s passed the film continues to make occasional appearances at film festivals since it premièred at one in June of 2013.  It won a directorial award last time out in April.  There can’t be many films that have stayed on the circuit for so long.

On Wednesday (10th August) Fabien, via the short’s Facebook page, let it be known that The Coin would be getting another outing.  This time is at the Northeast Film Festival in New Jersey.  The event starts on Friday the 9th of September and runs until the Sunday.  The Teaneck Cinemas in the Teaneck township of Bergen County in the north east corner of New Jersey will be the venues of the festival.

An actual schedule has not yet been released but Fabien suggests it will be on the Sunday of the weekend.  We’ll let you know when we have more details.

Monte Carlo TV Festival 2007 Photo Update

tv_festival_013In honour of today’s Formula 1 race in Monte Carlo, Monaco today I have an appropriately placed set of photos.

Kathryn made a lot of public appearances in 2007 to publicise the Resurrecting The Champ movie and Cold Case, as it was in full swing at that time.

In mid-June (so it is nearly date appropriate too) of that year Kathryn was a guest of the Television Festival in the principality of Monaco.  She attended various events and gave several interviews.

We’ve been here before but now I have added 9 new photos in the Gallery from this photoshoot and interview.

The Coin Comes Up Short(s)

hang_onto_your_shorts_film_festival_logo_640x640I’m not writing ‘trumps’, the word has lost all comic value.

The Coin continues to prove itself a long-term short.  It’s still pulling in further garlands after four years on the festival circuit.

At the Hang Onto Your Shorts Film Festival on Sunday (24th April 2016) Fabien Martorell won ‘Best Director Medium’ (presumably that means The Coin is classed as a not-so-short) for his work.

Congratulations to Fabien and the team for taking another award.

Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) was nominated in the ‘Best Actor Medium’ (again a reference to the film length and not the TV show or the actor’s height) category.  Kathryn was cruelly overlooked in the similar section for Actresses.  She did some top quality shouting.

The film was also up for the contradictorily named ‘Best Short Medium’ and ‘Best Concept’.  I guess it came up… short in those  😉

The Coin At Shorts Festival On Sunday

hang_onto_your_shorts_film_festival_logo_640x640A quick reminder about an upcoming Kathryn-related event.

As reported a month ago, Fabien Martorell’s short film The Coin is getting an airing at the Hang Onto Your Shorts Film Festival this coming Sunday (24th April 2016).

The event is held in the Asbury Park area of New Jersey, aka the Jersey Shore.

The Coin finds itself in a group of films which starts at 4:40pm at the Showroom Cinema on Cookman Avenue, NJ.  Presumably as there is no obvious theme and it is the final set of the day the group has been titled ‘Last Set’.

Kathryn stars in the piece as the mother of a young boy who encounters a homeless man (Christopher Lloyd of Back To The Future fame).  Life is not easy for the boy, thanks largely to his stressed-out mother, and the stranger gives him words of encouragement.

See my previous post here for more and the official website here for all the details.
