STRYNGS, a short film written and directed by Dallas filmmaker Derek Presley, will be screened at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival – Court Metrage (Short Film Corner) beginning May 15th to May 26th.
Starring Grant James (Tombstone), this fantastical tale follows Ambrosio The Great, an aging puppeteer who’s dying to perform one last show. The film unfolds beautifully and paints a compelling portrait of loneliness, hope, and the longing to leave a legacy.
Award-winning filmmaker, Geoff McGee, produced the film. His previous short film, NEAL has screened at many U.S. and international film festivals, including SXSW 2011. “The invitation to attend this prestigious film festival is very rewarding because Stryngs represents what an artist goes through for their art,” said McGee. “We shot on 35-mm film to challenge ourselves to work harder for our art form and we’ve created something I’m extremely proud of as a filmmaker.”
Producer Geoff McGee will be in attendance Cannes and available for interviews.
