Film still: The Last Film Festival

 

Chicago Premiere

 

Dennis Hopper's final film!

Film legend Dennis Hopper (The American Friend, The Last Movie) stars as Nick Twain, a big-time Hollywood producer whose latest flop of a film has been rejected by every film festival in the world is determined to get a Best Picture Award somewhere and use the publicity to acquire distribution. Nick bribes his way into the O'hi Film Festival, held in the small town of O'hi at their local high school, and will do anything to get his film distributed, including manipulating his dysfunctional cast into attending the festival. When Nick and his reluctant stars descend on the town, Hollywood egos hilariously collide with small town politics and by the time the award for Best Picture is announced, long-held secrets have been revealed, unexpected romances ignited and the town's big mystery solved.

The stellar cast of The Last Film Festival includes Jacqueline Bisset (Day For Night), Chris Kattan (Saturday Night Live), LeeLee Sobieski (Public Enemies), JoBeth Williams (Poltergeist).

Directed by Linda Yellen, 2015, USA, 90 mins.
