It’s been just over a month since we give you all the low-down on the Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival (SHIFF) happening this October. To recap:
2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Washington Irving’s classic tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, an iconic American original of immortal wonders that have firmly gripped the very psyche of our culture. This special place, this remarkable hollow of the indescribable, bewitched not only Irving but also artists of every creative pursuit for the next two centuries—including masters of the cinematic arts.
Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival celebrates this legacy of artistic inspiration and achievement. More info and further updates, including film and screenplay submission instructions, are available via the website www.sleepyhollowfilmfest.com.
Now, we’re getting news that actor Jeffery Combs (Re-Animator) is bringing his one-man-play about Edgar Allan Poe to SHIFF. Nevermore will play at the historic Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, New York.
Directed by Stuart Gordon, written by Dennis Paoli and starring Jeffrey Combs, Nevermore is a critically heralded experience that has delighted audiences for more than a decade. Hailed as “a landmark performance” by the L.A. Times, Combs has thrilled crowds across the country with his dynamic and revelatory portrayal of the legendary Poe.
