Complete British Neo-Noir Trilogy, The Toast of Telluride and New York Film Festivals, Presented in Special Theatrical Screenings For One Week Only
New York (NY) (January 15, 2009) – IFC Films, one of the leading American distributors of independent and foreign films, announced today that it will release RED RIDING: SPECIAL ROADSHOW EDITION for one week only beginning Friday, February 5th exclusively at the IFC Center in New York City. The 305 minute presentation of the complete trilogy, including 2 intermissions, will be presented twice daily, at 1:00pm and 7:00pm, for 14 performances only. The ticket price will be $25, $20 for seniors and $18 for IFC Center members. RED RIDING’s three chapters are directed by Julian Jarrold (BRIDESHEAD REVISITED), Academy Award ® Winner James Marsh (MAN ON WIRE) and Anand Tucker (HILARY AND JACKIE, SHOPGIRL). The films were written by Tony Grisoni (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) and based on the novels by David Peace. It is produced by Revolution Films’ Andrew Eaton, Anita Overland and Wendy Brazington. The Cast includes Andrew Garfield, Sean Bean, Warren Clarke, Rebecca Hall, Eddie Marsan, David Morrissey, Peter Mullan, Paddy Considine, Maxine Peake, Mark Addy and Daniel Mays.
RED RIDING will be presented without any trailers and the credits will run at the conclusion of the presentation. A free popcorn and a collectors edition program book featuring an essay by the esteemed writer David Thomson, interviews with the principal talent, a photo gallery, a description of the large cast of characters and complete credits will be given out to each audience member. Beginning Friday, February 12th, IFC Center will present RED RIDING in 3 parts with separate admissions. Landmark’s Nuart will also open the films as separate admissions followed by a national rollout.
RED RIDING was hailed by the New York Film Festival as “One of this year’s great cinematic events. Far and away the most convincing recent addition to the canon of film noir, this taut, mesmerizing trilogy of films was adapted from David Peace’s series of novels about the “Yorkshire Ripper,” a serial killer who terrorized northwest England in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Produced by Revolution Films Andrew Eaton, each of these new works was made by a different director, while all shared the same screenwriter, Tony Grisoni. Each installment can be seen separately, yet the impact of all three together is simply overwhelming.” The films also screened to great acclaim at the Telluride Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival and AFI Fest.
Jonathan Sehring, President of IFC Entertainment said, “After our incredible experience presenting CHE in its Roadshow format, and the extremely enthusiastic response of audiences, we knew this was something that we would love to do again, but only for the right project. We are now thrilled to bring the RED RIDING Roadshow to NY and partner with the IFC Center again on this exciting opportunity. Festival audiences have embraced the films and stirred true excitement for the upcoming release, and we’re very pleased to bring the complete RED RIDING experience to more moviegoers.”
