UNIQUE LOCAL FEATURE FILM YOUR NAME HERE PREMIERES AT CINEFEST SUDBURY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
Shot and set in Northern Ontario and produced by a professional crew also from the region, Your Name Here (2015) is a feature-length docufiction featuring dozens of local amateur actors under the direction of award-winning Canadian filmmaker and academic B. P. Paquette.
Entertaining, funny, and insightful, Your Name Here is both a celebration of the art and craft of movie acting, and a meditation on the desire for movie stardom from the perspective of the movie star that lives deep from within us all.
Set in a movie theatre as a workshop for amateur actors, Your Name Here not only features portraits of various everyday people who reveal themselves to be the movie stars they are in real life, but simultaneously retells the timeless story first told in the Oscar-winning Hollywood classic A Star is Born (1937), wherein a young woman comes to Hollywood with dreams of movie stardom, but achieves them only with the help of a tragic leading man whose best days are behind him.
Produced with the participation of the entire faculty of the Motion Picture Arts program at Thorneloe University, a member of the Laurentian University Federation, Your Name Here is a poignant valentine to the movies.
Your Name Here screens at SilverCity Sudbury on Monday, September 21 @ 3:00PM, and will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and crew.
