My congratulation to local Seattle filmmaker (and Facebook buddy) Lynn Shelton. Her new film, “Humpday,” has been chosen to play in the exclusive Directors’ Fortnight section of the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
The third feature from director Lynn Shelton made its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, where it played in the Dramatic Competition and was the first film sale of the fest. Shelton also won the “Someone to Watch Award” at the 2009 Spirit Awards for her second feature, “My Effortless Brilliance.”
Seattle audiences will get a chance to see “Humpday” on Friday, June 5 at the 2009 Seattle International Film Festival, where it will play as a Centerpiece Gala for the Northwest Connections sidebar.
My report is running on the Seattle PostGlobe website here.
I will also begin reviewing films for the Seattle PostGlobe next week.
