We are excited to spotlight two of our past staffers, Kelly Williams and Jonathan Duffy! During their time with us, Williams served as Senior Film Programmer and Duffy served as Development Director. Additionally, Williams contributed to AFF by producing 10 episodes for On Story. Both have gone on to form Ten Acres Films, and are known for producing films like Hellion (2014), and 6 Years (2015), which was later acquired by Netflix. Most recently, both were producers for Sorry to Bother You, a film that will be hitting theaters this Summer. We are proud of them for the work that they have done, and are thrilled to be offering an advanced screening of the film!
Make sure to RSVP for the event and check out the reviews below to see what you can expect to see!
“Sorry to Bother You is a house party of a movie, some rooms more lively than others, some you wish you could spend more time in, some downright unforgettable in the best way.” – Emily Yoshida
“Sorry to Bother You is equal parts dystopian sci-fi and uproarious comedy, with a sharp message about the state of race, labor and capitalism in modern America. Riley pulls together these seemingly disparate threads for a movie that’s smart, stylish and wholly enjoyable.” – Molly Freeman
“Profane and brilliant, Sorry to Bother You is one of the most daring and thrilling comedies of the last 20 years.” – Kristy Puchko
