San Diego Int’l Film Festival 2019

inCollage_20191029_133352402Machelle Noel attended the San Diego Int’l Film Festival (SDIFF) as their Field Reporter this year, interviewing some of the well-known actors and actresses receiving awards and presenting films. Its one of the biggest film festivals in California with screenings of movies, from shorts to feature lengths, for rising and independent filmmakers. Honorees include Laurence Fishburne with the Gregory Peck Award For Cinematic Excellence, Pitbull with the Music Icon Award, Jared Harris with the Cinema Vanguard Award, Lindsay Wagner for the Humanitarian Award, Camilia Morrone for the Rising Star Awards and many others. This extraordinary evening celebrates the imagination, passion and vision influencing cinematic excellence today and yesterday. Night of the Stars Tribute is the San Diego International Film Festivals premier event. A glamorous evening of celebration including a celebrity red carpet, cocktail receptions, awards show and post-event party.

During the Night of the Stars Tribute, we met up with Colin Egglesfield, who attended the film festival to present his new upcoming film 100 Days to Live. The movie also won “Best World Premiere” during the tribute ceremony. The film is a thriller, and it deals mainly with mental health. Colin highlights the film’s first-time director and writer, Ravin Gandhi, who he says does an excellent job of dealing with this sensitive issue. Colin shares a tragic piece of information about the film, that his cousin committed suicide while they were filming this movie that in fact deals with the subject of suicide. Clearly a subject close to both their hearts, Colin talks about the importance of addressing this issue and we thank him for making this his platform to spread awareness.

Colin explains that 100 Days to Live is set up to be distributed worldwide, however, they are not entirely sure yet which platform it will be distributed to. Options include either Cable or On Demand. Colin also shares some advice he himself got from actor/filmmaker Mark Duplass, who, a few years ago shot an entire film on an iPhone. His advice was to not wait for a producer or agent to find you, but to go out and shoot your own film.
