Saturday in Conflicts of Interest

posted by on February 22 at 11:56 AM

The Independent Spirit Awards are tomorrow, and competing for the producers award are two NW players: Portland’s Neil Kopp (Old Joy, Paranoid Park) and Seattle’s Alexis Ferris (Police Beat, Zoo, and—maybe this one should be on the DL—Cthulhu). The other nominee is Anne Clements, who produced the lovely, if less high-minded, Quinceañera.

The award is accompanied by a $25,000 grant. Here are Variety’s mini-profiles of the contenders.

Also on Saturday: a sendoff party/fundraiser for Lynn Shelton’s boy-bonding drama My Effortless Brilliance, starring Calvin Reeder, Basil Harris, and Sean Nelson, Emeritus. The film is premiering in competition at SXSW on March 9. The party is at Northwest Film Forum at 11 pm: food, booze, Sean singing, good times.

Alexis Ferris is a bitch.

Wait, did that Cthulhu movie ever get released? Is it going to be on DVD? The website looks like it hasn't been updated in a year...

@2: It doesn't have a distributor, no. If you missed it at SIFF, you may have missed it forever.

There is substantive reason behind that.

Is that fundraiser/party open to anyone? Do you need to be a donor to attend, or is there a cover?

Open to anyone, and 6 bucks at the door.
