Portland-Filmed “Green Room” Premiering at Toronto Film Festival

Friday, August 21, 2015

 

A film shot in Portland and starring Sir Patrick Stewart will premier at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

"Green Room" follows a punk band as they become trapped in an Oregon venue after a murder occurs at one of their shows. Starring Stewart, Anton Yelchin (known for his role as Chekhov in the current Star Trek re-boot series), Imogen Poots, and Alia Shawkat, the film was shot in Portland last fall and was written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier.

After a successful screening of "Green Room" at Cannes Film Festival back in May, the film will have its North American premier during the Midnight Madness sidebar at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. 

Reviews of the film's initial premier at Cannes praised Stewart and Poots for their individual performances, and for notes of well-delivered tension as the dramatic thriller documents a hungover punk band clashing with club owners and a neo-Nazi audience. 

The film will appear during the Midnight Madness sidebar of the Toronto Film Festival. Produced by Portland’s own Neil Kopp along with Anish Savjani and Victor Moyers, it depicts a grisly cinematic journey that will fit in nicely with other projects of that ilk at Midnight Madness.

The Toronto International Film Festival sidebar will take place every night at midnight from September 10th to September 20th.
