[September 10, 2013 – Sarasota, Fla.] Suncoast-based independent film production company Midnight Pass Entertainment announced today that it’s first two feature films, “Beautiful Noise” and “Blind Pass”, will be showcased at the Movieville International Film Festival in Sarasota, Florida taking place September 19-22, 2013 at the legendary Burns Court Cinemas. Blind Pass screens on Movieville’s Opening Night on Friday, September 20th at 6:30pm. Filmed entirely on location on Florida’s Suncoast and in Ireland, Writer/Producer/Director Steve Tatone’s new indie drama/thriller features an ensemble Cast led by Emmy Award Winner and international film and television star Armand Assante and Sarasota’s very own Danielle White, who also co-produced the film.
Beautiful Noise, a musical/drama also starring Ms. White and written, produced and directed by Mr. Tatone, originally made it’s Suncoast splash in 2011, breaking box office records at the Sarasota Film Festival. The film has been re-edited by the filmmaker in advance of it’s upcoming DVD release and will screen at Movieville on Saturday, September 21st at Burns Court at 6:30 pm.
Mr Tatone stated: “It’s always great to be embraced by your hometown. The people behind the Movieville Film Festival are dedicated to presenting high quality films created right here in southwest Florida as well as amazing features from around the world. We’re thrilled with this very special double-feature opportunity and very happy that our Sarasota-Bradenton fans can catch both of our films the same weekend at Burns Court. Hundreds of Suncoast movie-goers were shut out from seeing Beautiful Noise a couple of years ago due to the six sold out showings, so this is a wonderful opportunity to screen an even better version of the film. And what a terrific way to wind up our amazing Florida film festival run with Blind Pass before it premieres at the Woodstock Film Festival in New York next month! These are very exciting times for our indie film company.”
