Film to Debut in Erie

Posted: Updated:

The FILM at the Erie Art Museum series will close its spring 2013 season by offering a screening of what some call the hottest film in the independent film world.  Shane Carruth's "Upstream Color" will debut in Erie on Wednesday April 24 at 7:00PM.

Already hailed as one of the best films of 2013, "UPSTREAM COLOR" received rave reviews following its world premiere screening at the Sundance Film Festival in January and European premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February.

The film will screen at SXSW and MoMA in March before opening in limited theaters in April. The film's screening in Erie will be its Pennsylvania Premiere.

Shane Carruth's first feature, "Primer," premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize.  The time-travel film has since become a cult hit. FILM at the Erie Art Museum curator John C. Lyons said, "I was a huge fan of "Primer" and it has been a long wait for Carruth's follow-up film."  Lyons also says landing an early slot in the film's release is the "icing on the cake"and a perfect fit to close out the FILM at the Erie Art Museum series.

Tickets are $5.00 pre-sale and at the door and $15.00 for Dinner & a Movie. FILM at the Erie Art Museum is a program of the Film Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania which aims to fosters awareness, appreciation and understanding of the art of film while providing
assistance, support and education for regional film production. You can learn more at FilmSocietyNWPA.org.
