Catalina Film Festival wrapped with Awards and the World Premiere of The Cleaner

Catalina Film Festival, presented by blk., wrapped their 11th Anniversary Sept. 25, at the historic Catalina Casino with the World Premiere of The Cleaner, starring Luke Wilson, King Orba, Lynda Carter, Shelley Long, and Soliel Moon Frye. Craig Stark and Shiloh Fernandez hit the red carpet alongside Director Erin Elders, DP Jeff Tomcho, and Editor Matt Prekop. The Cleaner releases October 12.

“We are so thrilled to be back on the island after last year’s hiatus,” said Festival Founder & Director Ron Truppa, who produced a drive-in and socially-distanced event in Long Beach with virtual screenings in 2020 but canceled the island festivities due to Covid restrictions. “This is our “10-Again” celebration and return to the red carpet at our home theater, the historic Catalina Casino. I’m so honored to present our Official Selections with a platform to showcase their films in-person, here on the island and on the mainland in Long Beach, plus virtually via our partners FilmFestivalFlix.com and OhYay.co - offering everyone the opportunity to experience Catalina Film!” 

 

The Catalina Film Festival landed back on the Island for screenings Friday, Sept. 24, and Saturday, Sept. 25, with blocks of short films in categories: Animation, Conservation, Comedy, International, Documentaries, plus curated themes: “Do the Right Thing” and “Happy/Sad,” which included the short film, Sorry for your Loss by Associate Producer Janet Von. Her husband, actor Drake Bell (Drake & Josh) was in attendance with their son in support of his wife’s film screening. Friday’s feature film, The Catch, rolled out the Opening Night Red Carpet for Writer/ Director Matthew Ya-Hsiung Balzer and actor Bill Sage, both in attendance, as well as Presley A. Aronson, who opened Friday’s presentation with the World Premiere of his anti-bullying music video, Background.

 

Saturday events featured the infamous Lion’s Den, an exclusive Catalina Film Festival event, for aspiring filmmakers to pitch accredited investors for project funding. Lions included Ed Morgan (Poker Face, Obamaland), Jonathan Brostoff, Creative Exec. for Producer Brad Fuller (A Quiet Place, Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Producer Phil Cohen. Guests and Filmmakers also enjoyed an exclusive pre-red-carpet party in Hamilton Cove (with spectacular views)  hosted by Ray and Kim McKewon; Red Carpet arrivals, Awards Ceremony, Closing Night Film and After Party with a “torched” dining experience by The Gastro Garage. 

 

Catalina Film Festival launched in Long Beach last weekend, Sept 17-19 at the Scottish Rite Cultural Center and offered virtual screening via FilmFestivalFlix.com and OhYay.co. from Sept. 17-26, including a virtual Screenwriting Panel featuring Billy Pollina (You Got Served), Jason Neese & Jamie Neese (The Umbrella Academy) and Marjorie DeHey (Bottle Monster), plus an Actors Panel featuring Michael Benyaer (Deadpool), Hallie Todd (Lizzie McGuire), Damaine Radcliff (Step Up), Joel Michaely (The Rules of Attraction), Darren Darnborough (Magnum P.I.)
