There are 4,000 film festivals around the world. Where would you go if your film was turned down by 3,999 of them?. What happens when an obscure film festival is the last hope for a failing producer and his disaster of a movie? When the artifice and ruthlessness of Hollywood collides with the homespun innocence of small town America, neither will ever be the same. Written by
Nick Twain, an aging filmmaker, travels to an obscure amateur festival to submit his work among other wonderfully trashy films.
The Last Film Festival is a very funny portrayal of a hard-working director, Nick Twain, who only wants his work --good or bad -- to be known and appreciated. His love and passion don't get in the way of his own ego and inner desires, as his insatiable lust can also get the better of him.
Jacqueline Bisset also draws laughs with her imposed Italian accent and diva outbursts. Her relationship with Twain and younger actresses are highlights of the film.
Chris Kattan and Donnell Rawlings play minor roles, but their natural talent and improv help propel the secondary story lines of the film and give The Last Film Festival an added flair.
Dennis Hopper's natural charm and humor shine in this cute indie flick and you'll be humming the little "O-hi" number for hours after the credits roll.
