Idyllwild’s Celebrated Film Festival Enters Its 8th Season The Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema will once again play host to a bevy of great independent movies this January 5th through the 15th, as it marks its 8th year as one of California’s fastest growing film showcase events. With over 130 films on display throughout the 11 day festival, IIFC and the beautiful mountain top village of Idyllwild, just two hours east of Los Angeles, will once again hold court for movie makers from the US and around the world - from as far away as Iran, Kosovo, Hong Kong, India, and the UK, to name but a few - making it a truly international event.

Expanding its schedule for 2017 from six days to eleven, IIFC plans on making the most of its growing status as one of “THE” festivals to hit during the winter film fest season. Some of the highlights for 2017: The Opening Weekend Showcase Event - The Saturday January 7th event begins appropriately at High Noon with the world premiere of a brand new western television pilot, “Tucker’s War”, from writer/director and IIFC founder Stephen Savage.

The screening will be preceded by an in depth on stage discussion and Q&A with Hollywood legend Joan Steiger; actor, author, and widow of the late Academy Award© winning actor Rod Steiger. Joan will speak about her long Hollywood career in television and film, working alongside such legends as Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney and her relationship with Rod Steiger. In addition, Ms. Steiger will discuss her role in Mr. Savage’s upcoming film “The Wind of Heaven”, a major motion picture scheduled to begin production in the spring of 2017.

Also attending will be two of the film’s stars: Wolfgang Bodison (“A Few Good Men”, “Bones”) and Oscar Torre (“The Hangover III”, CSI, Miami”). A reception with the film's cast and crew will follow the event. Ms. Steiger will also be on hand to sign copies of her new book "Brooklyn Baby", along with the book's cowriter David Minasian, one of The Wind of Heaven's producers. The Official Opening Night Kick Off - Thursday January 5th, will include the controversial new work by international award winning documentarian Cassie Jaye, entitled “The Red Pill”, and a soon to be announced Special Opening Night Feature, selected by festival director Stephen Savage and festival executive producer Trinity Houston. These screenings will be followed by the annual Idyllwild Opening Night Welcoming Party, which has become a much anticipated event for Indie filmmakers in the know.

Closing Weekend Q&A and Awards Ceremony - Saturday January 15th will feature an on stage discussion with Academy Award©, Golden Globe, and BAFTA nominated actress Anne Archer. Festival director Stephen Savage will again host this lively talk with Ms. Archer, regarding her much heralded career, which includes landmark performances in some of Hollywood’s greatest films, such as “Fatal Attraction”, “Clear and Present Danger”, and “Patriot Games”, to name only a few, and her working relationships with people like Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, and Tommy Lee Jones. Sunday Afternoon January 15th, marks the 8th Annual IIFC Awards Ceremony, with the presentation of the much coveted Golden Coyote Film Awards. Films To Look For at Idyllwild 2017: Each year, Team IIFC creates a list of the must see shorts, featurettes, animations, web series, documentaries, and feature films highlighting the festival. This coming season, those titles will include: The aforementioned “The Red Pill”, past Cannes Independent winning director Cassy Jaye’s look at the Men’s Movement in America, through the eyes of a young feminist filmmaker.

The documentary has created quite a stir among feminist groups around the world, as Ms. Jaye shines a pragmatic light on just what these men have to say, and why they may not be quite the womanizing cave men they’ve been made out to be. Also on the documentary front, “Hired Gun”, a look at some of the LA Music Scene's top session players and side musicians from the 70s to the present day, and the influence they’ve had on music in general and rock stars in particular, most of them make a living playing, singing, and songwriting in relative obscurity.

Meet the musicians behind some of music's most iconic rockers, such as Alice Cooper, Steve Via, Rob Zombie, Slash, Billy Joel, Pink, Metallica, and more. Some of the Great Indie Films To Watch For at IIFC 2017! Among the Top US and Foreign Film Titles screening at Idyllwild this January are: Changeover, Trippin’ Through, Sienna's Choice, Supermom, Standpoint, 30 Days To Say Goodbye, Caged, The Watchers, Missing Child, Where Did You Go?, Welcome to Where You’ve Always Been, The Guns Of Wachoiye, and Dark Roads 79.
