The inaugural New York Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival kicks off next week on September 1, and in advance of ten days of films and fun, the festival has released their full lineup. The festival will open with Jay Duplass’ Kevin and will close with Craig Vivieros’ Lost in Italy (starring Glen Murphy and Ray Winstone). The festival’s centerpiece film is Josh Hyde’s Postales (an Official Selection at the Edinburgh and Shanghai International Film Festivals). In between those three framing films, the festival will show over 140 features and shorts, along with a number of interesting and unique panels. Duplass’ documentary Kevin is the director’s first foray into documentary features, and its opening night screening will be followed by a performance by Kevin Gant himself (a talented performer that both the Duplass brothers idolized as kids). Gant and Duplass will also participate in a Q&A moderated by Matt Singer. Other standouts in the NYHKFF schedule include a special 10th Anniversary Screening of Ken Park, with director Larry Clark and actress Tiffany Limos appearing for a Q&A following the film, along with screenings of Mike Petty’s Karaoke Man (starring James Denton), gay comedy Walk A Mile In My Pradas (starring Tom Arnold), and Sheron Dayoc’s Halaw (Special Jury Prize winner at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival). The festival has also put together a couple of very, very interesting panels (cough, cough, I’m on one, cough), which you can read more about after the break.
