Film Option: The Festival
The Arts Channel – Thursday 18 October, 9.00pm
A vérité-satire, The Festival is an ensemble comedy, told from the perspective of fictional IFC documentarian, Cookie. Cookie’s subject: Rufus Marquez, a quixotic young director embarking on his virgin voyage to the prestigious Mountain United Film Festival (MUFF). The Film is ‘’The Unreasonable Truth of Butterflies’’. The goal is a distribution deal. And the pressure is on. “The Festival is everything a mock documentary should be: sassy, glib, subtle, biting and consistently hilarious’’ – Ray Richmond, The Hollywood Reporter.
