2012 ReelWorld Film Festival, April 11-15

Thanks to the generous support of our returning partners, TD Bank Group, NBC Universal and Cineplex Entertainment, the ReelWorld Film Festival (RWFF) is proud to announce the screenings of  "LUV" and "Hopelessly In June."   "LUV", directed by Sheldon Candis will be the festival’s Opening Night Gala, Wednesday, April 11th at Cineplex Odeon Sheppard Cinemas.

"LUV" is the journey of eleven-year-old Woody Watson, a timid Baltimore orphan who dreams of a better life, and his absentee mother who may or may not be in North Carolina fighting drug addiction.  Woody puts his hopes into the hands of his uncle Vincent, who he looks up to as the father figure he never had.  Vincent, a street hustler and former drug dealer is fresh off an eight-year stint in prison, but wants to take a new direction in his life.  When Vincent offers to show his nephew how a man handles his business, Woody jumps at the opportunity to join him on a field trip of life lessons.  Vincent's plan is to open his own crab shack restaurant, however, when he's denied a bank loan, the temptations of his old life, working for Baltimore crime boss Mr. Fish return to haunt him.  A day once bright with optimism quickly spirals downward into a world of violence. Coming of age all too fast by day's end, Woody starts to doubt his hero and ultimately must decide where he stands.

The film stars, Michael Rainey Jr., CommonDanny Glover and Dennis Haysbert.  The films director, Sheldon Candis will be in attendance.  "Hopelessly In June", a Special Presentation Screening, sponsored by NBC Universal, will screen, Thursday, April 12th at Famous Players Canada Square, Theater 6.   Dating in Los Angeles has been cruel to Daleon Myers, a financial analyst from a staunch Baptist family, but hope emerges when he falls in love with June Flowers.  June is a successful businesswoman whose parents are an extremely liberal Hollywood couple.  It will take a lot to help them overcome their cultural differences and find the love they both have so long desired. Directed by Vincent Brantley, the film stars, Keith David,Vincent Brantley and Carolyn Neff.  Two time Emmy winner Keith David will be in attendance for a RealSpeak following the screening as well as the Director Vincent Brantley.
