Adam Brody, Michael Fassbender and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are among the stars that will appear in more than 300 films to be featured in this year’s Palm Springs International ShortFest & Film Market, organizers announced today.
In its 18th year, the festival is set to feature 323 films from 52 countries, chosen from an entry pool of more than 3,000. They’ll be presented as 53 themed programs to screen June 19-25 at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs.
Check out this positive review for Double Or Nothing!
While the last thing that people might find time to see at a big festival like Tribeca is some USC grad’s ten-minute thesis film that stars his sister, Nathaniel Krause‘s Double or Nothing has a tremendous amount going for it that recommend the short for a quick watch and some sustaining laughs. After all, it’s the only film at Tribeca that’s written by Neil LaBute. You’re paying attention now, right?
The film stars Adam Brody (who will next be seen in another LaBute-penned feature, Some Girls) and Krause’s sister Louisa (whose name you might know from King Kelly, an unexpected hit at this year’s SXSW Film Festival) as a young couple who have issues to spare. All is not well in their young romance, and that’s about to be hammered home when they begin to argue outside a bar late at night, with an eagle-eyed homeless man (Keith David) watching their tiff unfold in real time. Just like in Caroline and Jackie, audiences won’t see the climax or conclusion of Double or Nothing coming, though the short comes with plenty of laughs to lessen the blows.
With one wicked little short, director Krause proves to be a talent to watch, while also showing just how much Brody has progressed beyond his years as The O.C.‘s Seth Cohen.
Thanks to Nathaniel for letting us know, Double Or Nothing will be getting its debut at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. For details on the film’s screenings and more, check out the film’s festival page.
