"We are so excited to have our world premiere in our home town," said writer-director Scott Takeda. "We shot this dramedy short with a lot of my family members, so I'm excited that they'll be able to attend. Our LA cast will be flying out to attend the red carpet and the premiere."
"This is so huge," said producer Brock Sherman. "It's the 40th Year for the festival, which has premiered so many films like the Oscar-nominated 'Ray.' Last year, they screened Damien Chazelle's 'La La Land,' and this year, they are screening Greta Gerwig's 'Lady Bird,' Aaron Sorkin's 'Molly's Game' and other Oscar-buzzworthy films. It's very flattering to be among these filmmakers."
