Due to unexpected changes in his production schedule, Franco won't be able to attend our opening night presentation of "I Am Michael." He is still scheduled to attend the World Premiere of "The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards" on Wednesday 3/25 at 9:45 PM at The Rialto, where he will walk the red carpet and stay for a Q&A following the film.
Producer Vince Jolivette is still scheduled to attend tonight's screening of "I Am Michael" for a Q&A after the film. Actress Abigail Spencer (TV's "Rectify," "Mad Men," ATLFF '15 Official Selection "Winter Light") will walk the red carpet prior to introducing the film alongside ATLFF Executive Director Christopher Escobar.
We are willing to refund anyone who purchased a ticket to opening night in the hopes of seeing Mr. Franco. However, if you still come out to The Plaza and celebrate the launch of the 2015 Atlanta Film Festival with us by watching "I Am Michael," you will receive a FREE TICKET to see "The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards" on Wednesday night.
