OFFICIAL SELECTION 2006 Tribeca Film Fest
America's current division into Red States and Blue States is given a
romantic twist in the ironic Romeo & Juliet-esque Conventioneers. Set
against the 2004 Republican National Convention, it explores the
complicated, bitter love affair between a Republican delegate and a
Democrat protesting the RNC.
The film recently premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival and is
nominated for an Independent Spirit Award (the John Cassavetes Award
for best feature under $500,000).
Join us for a filmmakers workshop with producer Trevor Murphy
and actor Alek Freidman at 6:00 pm.
Free for IFP/Chicago, NATAS and Facets members, $5 all others.
