Unrepentant, a 15 minute short film from Yarnmaker, will make its first High Definition screening in the US at the Big Easy International Film Festival on Sunday 12th December 2010, in the 7pm block.
The Big Easy International Film Festival in New Orleans promises to be a treat for fans of film, with the festival directors pulling out all stops to ensure films are screened in glorious HD with Dolby Digital Surround Sound, allowing the films to be experienced just as the filmmakers intended. But the treats do not end with high quality projection! The event, now extended to a week, will be held at The Theatres at Canal Place. The venue offers film fans in-seat service of food and drink, adding an indulgent touch to what already promises to be a great festival. We are excited for Unrepentant to be screening at such a large, high quality event.
In other news, the team behind Unrepentant was humbled to be awarded an Achievement in Sound Design from the recently completed 8th Annual Wild Rose Independent Film Festival in Iowa. The award has special meaning for us, because sound is such an important but often overlooked aspect of filmmaking. A lot of hard work went into Unrepentant's Dolby Digital mix.
Unrepentant is a 14 minute short film that raises the ethical question of sex offenders who have served their incarceration time, but psychologically are highly likely to re-offend. It is a difficult subject with no easy answers.
