Shriekfest Founder/Director Nabs Role in Mel Gibson Film, “Get the Gringo”

 
Denise Gossett 
 
 
It’s obvious to anyone who has tried—breaking into show business takes a lot of work. And no one knows this better than actor Denise Gossett, founder and director of the Shriekfest Film Festival, the longest-running Los Angeles-based festival dedicated to all things horror and sci-fi. But it seems that Ms. Gossett is starting to see her efforts really pay off. This May, she will be featured in the new Mel Gibson motion picture, “Get the Gringo.” 
The film, which opens in select theaters May 1 and in international markets May 11, is an action/comedy filmed in Mexico City. The plot focuses on a career criminal (Gibson) who is nabbed by Mexican authorities and held in a gritty prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy. Ms. Gossett plays a secretary to veteran actor Bob Gunton’s character, and she shares several scenes with Mr. Gibson and Peter Stormare, notable for his performances in films such as “Fargo,” “The Big Lebowski,” and others.

“It was amazing to work with this caliber of talent,” said Gossett. “I couldn’t have asked for a more giving cast.”  For more information on Ms. Gossett visit www.denisegossett.com 
In addition to her acting work, Gossett is running the 12th annual Shriekfest festival, taking place in Los Angeles October 4-7, 2012. Shriekfest was created in July 2001 by Ms. Gossett and has grown into one of the largest horror and sci-fi film festivals in the country. Since its inception, Shriekfest has offered young and upcoming writers, actors, and producers a chance to have their work screened and rated by peers. 
Shriekfest recently announced that it has teamed up with LiveParanormal.com, an online horror and paranormal community, to present Shriekfest Radio. The bi-weekly show airs on www.liveparanormal.com on Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. PST, and it spotlights Shriekfest finalists and winners and updates listeners on developments in the horror/sci-fi movie-making community. Ms. Gossett frequently makes appearances on the program to discuss the evolution of the festival and take questions on the submission and award process.
