NGNM to Showcase at 2013 Sedona Int’l Film Festival
No God, No Master has officially been invited to the 19th Annual Sedona International Film Festival, to be held between February 23 and March 3, 2013. More than 145 films will be screened over nine days in this incredibly picturesque arts community tucked blissfully into the Red Rocks of Sedona. Named by MovieMaker Magazine the “Fest to Impress” and recognized by audiences and filmmakers as one of the top festivals in the nation, it’s an honor to have our film showcased at this year’s event.
Patrick Schweiss, SIFF’s Executive Director, has graciously offered to give the film two screenings at the festival, with specific dates and times to be announced. Anticipating a lively Q&A session for a film that addresses issues pertaining to immigration and specifically to deportation in a state where it’s a hot topic, Director Terry Green will be attending. “I expect the Sedona Q&A might center around the immigration issue… I make these types of films to spark discussion,” Green recently told Sedona Monthly Magazine writer J.J. Kelley. No God, No Master is set in the summer of 1919, when a series of mail bombs were sent to prominent political leaders and kings of industry, threatening to disrupt the flow of government and its policies toward immigrant Americans, most of whom were struggling just to earn a living. “It’s an interesting way to get the conversation going about the issue,” added the film’s leading actor David Strathairn in a separate interview. Strathairn plays Bureau of Investigation Agent William Flynn in the film.
Sedona is the first of several festival stops the film anticipates making throughout the spring and summer, with domestic distribution as the goal at the end of its festival run. The film has been garnering awards and screening to sold-out houses at every festival venue at which it’s played, and hopes to repeat this pattern in Sedona. Please stay tuned for further updates on these and other festival dates in the future.
