The Seventh Python has picked up another accolade-- named just hours ago as an official selection in the prestigious 2009 Pacific Palisades Film Festival. The nonfiction film about legendary pop satirist and Monty Python cohort Neil Innes-- produced by our pals at Frozen Pictures-- will be a highlight of the film fest in the town at the end of Sunset Boulevard that's home to Hollywood heavyweights like Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Ray Liotta, Larry David and Kate Hudson (niece of Seventh writer-producer Brett Hudson)-- not to mention the film's director and several other members of the crew.
The festival will take place May 14th to 16th. We'll have information on screenings as they become available (we only got this information when one of our loyal readers sent us a tip from Facebook).
The Seventh Python is being featured later this week at the New York Metro Fest for Beatles Fans in the New Jersey Meadowland. We've also just learned that a second screening has been added to the much-anticipated "early bird" screening at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 28th. The film will be shown at 1:45 p.m next Sunday-- followed by a Q&A with Hudson, director Burt Kearns and the film's star, Neil Innes.
Next stop: Las Vegas, where the filmmakers will pick up the Golden Ace Award from the Las Vegas International Film Festival on April 12th. The Vegas screening time will be announced soon.
