The fourth annual Soho International Film Festival is about to get underway, and for the second year in a row the screenings will be held at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema at 143 East Houston.  This year’s fete has broken its record for the most different countries, women, and young director submissions. Getcha popcorn ready.

From the press release:

Opening Night launches the festival with Billy Bates, a film by Julie Pacino, Al Pacino’s daughter, and original music by Grammy Award winner Moby. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer will be presenting the winner of a film contest she recently hosted with her fan club, as will the screening of My Better Half by 16 year old Olivia deLaurentis, who wrote, directed, edited and acted in her groundbreaking film and is daughter of iconic 80’s actress Diane Franklin (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Better Off Dead) who will be attending. 

German director Uwe Boll will be screening Assault on Wall Street, which stars Dominic Purcell of TV’s Prison Break and well known character actor Eric Roberts, and documentary made about Ben Gazzara, who passed away shortly after the film wrapped, will make its New York City debut.

The festival runs from April 5-12. Full schedule, tickets, and more information about the festival are available here.
