NEW ORLEANS, 8 January 2014 -- Writer/Director Randy Mack celebrates the production wrap of his latest feature (Laundry Day) with a showing of his first feature, Burning Annie, hosted as part of DyverseCity's Krewe du Cinema series. As part of the venue's mission to empower art, products, and services in a collective artistic co-op, DyverseCity often hosts events promoting entrepreneurs and community development.

Burning Annie (2007) -- released from LightYear/Warner Bros. -- is a story about a college student's addiction to Annie Hall. The film received a Golden Starfish Award nomination for 'Best Fiction Feature' at the Hamptons International Film Festival where it initially premiered, and won 'Best Feature' at both the West Virginia Filmmakers Film Festival and MassBay Film Festival. It has also been awarded for 'Best First Feature' (Seattle True Independent Film Festival), and as the Tastie Awards for 'Best Screenplay,' 'Best Director,' and 'Best Actor.'

Among a collection of short films and screenplays from Armak Productions, Mack is currently in post-production for his feature film Laundry Day, which shot on location in New Orleans this past December. This latest feature, being promoted as “a dark feature by/of/about New Orleans,” has best been described as Magnolia meets Barfly. It tells the tale of four New Orleans residents whose fight in a bar reveals the intertwining of their lives—and the lies they entail.

Laundry Day stars Samantha Ann Huffman, Dave Randolph-Mayhem Davis, Kerry Cahill, and Billy Slaughter as the four central characters.

Following the showcase of Burning Annie, Mack will participate in a Q&A session. He also has clips from his other cinematic works to share with attendees.

The event happens on Wednesday, 22 January starting at 7p, 3929 Fourth St. Admission is free, and concessions are available.
