The Fantasia International Film Festival’s early release of its “First Wave” of films confirms their official selection of the film KIDNAP CAPITAL. (see http://www.screendaily.com/news/fantasia-fest-to-honour-guillermo-del-toro-takashi-miike/5104370.article)
The July 30th screening of the movie, directed by Montreal-born Felipe Rodriguez and starring an incredible ensemble cast of Canadian talent, will be its Canadian Premiere. KIDNAP CAPITAL has already screened at the Shanghai IFF, St-Louis IFF, and the Newport Beach FF among others, and has won awards at the festivals in San Diego, Manchester, and at ECU in Paris.
The Fantasia screening will have the director and select cast and crew in attendance, and promises to be a great return home after a busy July: before Fantasia Kidnap Capital screens in competition at the Madrid International Film Festival (Nominated for “Best Cinematography” and “Best Editing”) and at the Revelation Perth International Film Festival in Australia, where it plays on closing night.
Stay tuned for more news about the Kidnap Capital, Fantasia, and events surrounding the Premiere in the coming weeks.
