Film will also have its Texas premiere at The Dallas International Film Festival, WorldFest-Houston and West Coast Spotlight premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
TPSC Films is pleased to announce the World Premiere and Trinity of notable festival screenings for the upcoming Steven Chester Prince film Divine Access.
The film stars Billy Burke (Revolution, Twilight series) and an all-star ensemble including Gary Cole (Veep, Pineapple Express, Talladega Nights), Patrick Warburton (Ted, Family Guy, Rules of Engagement), Joel David Moore (Avatar, Savages), Sarah Shahi (Bullet to the Head, Person of Interest), Dora Madison (Dark Places, Friday Night Lights), Barak Hardley (Raising Hope, Community) and Adrienne Barbeau (Argo).
The script, written by Steven Chester Prince, John A. O'Connell and Michael Zagst sees Billy Burke’s Jack Harriman becoming an instant spiritual celebrity after humiliating Gary Cole’s Reverend Guy Roy Davis on a public-access TV show. While on the road speaking his brand of truth, forces both natural and supernatural lead him to question whether he has a deeper calling.
The Sarasota Film Festival, one of the fastest growing and most visible regional film festivals, will premiere Divine Access in competition this April. "We're excited to have the World Premiere of Divine Access at this year's Sarasota Film Festival,” says Michael Dunaway, Director of Programming for Sarasota Film Festival. “Steve Prince shows that he's not just a pretty faced actor, or an accomplished producer -- he's a damned fine director as well. The loose, Big Lebowski-meets-Life of Brian vibe is sure to resonate with our audience, and of course the film has a lot on its mind beneath all the craziness. It's one of my favorite films in this year's lineup."
Shot in Austin, TX the film holds true to its roots with a special screening at The Dallas International Film Festival and in competition at the 48th annual WorldFest-Houston Film Festival, where it has also been nominated for a prestigious REMI award.
West Coast premiere will be held late April at The Newport Beach Film Festival where it screens as one of only ten coveted spotlight films. "We're extremely excited to have DIVINE ACCESS as a part of our Friday Night Spotlight program, both for its strong ties to Newport Beach through natives like Kevin Matusow and Patrick Warburton and because it's one of the funniest films we screened this year," says Max Naylor, Director of Features Programming for Newport Beach Film Festival.
The director, producers, writers, and select starring cast members will attend each festival.
Director Steven Chester Prince is no stranger to the big screen. He has been an active member of the industry for two decades as a writer, producer, actor, and stuntman. “The response has been incredible. I can't wait to get it in front of the audiences at these great festivals,” says Prince.
Divine Access was lensed by Julie Kirkwood and produced by The Traveling Picture Show Company's Kevin Matusow, Carissa Buffel and Steven Chester Prince, Blackball Entertainment’s Billy Burke, and Terry G. Jones. Executive producing are Clay Glendenning and Jeff Way for G-Men Media.
