Congratulations to BAFF alumni film "Hello Lonesome" for a 2011 Independent Spirit Award nomination

December 1, 2011

Big Apple Film Festival is proud to announce that alumni film "Hello Lonesome" directed by Adam Reid has been nominated for a 2011 Independent Spirit Award.

With an enchanting mixture of laughter and longing, the worlds of six flawed yet endearing individuals are woven together as they explore those age-old human desires: to love and be loved. Single urbanite Gordon (NATE SMITH) meets Debby (SABRINA LLOYD) online and finds their new relationship put to the ultimate test. A suburban widow (LYNN COHEN) gets much more than she was looking for when she loses her license and leans on her neighbor (JAMES URBANIAK) for support. And in the country, successful voice-over artist Bill Soap (HARRY CHASE) starts to make amends for being such a lousy father. Sparkling with wit and humanity, Hello Lonesome is the first feature film from writer/director Adam Reid. Will be released on DVD and Netflix in 2012.
