The Big Spaghetti has been officially selected to make its North American premiere at the acclaimed Slamdance Film Festival 2019.
The Big Spaghetti is a five-part web series created and written by Adriane Daff, Zoe Pepper and Tim Watts, directed by Pepper, produced by Susannah Day and executive produced by Lauren Elliott from Mad Kids. The series tells the story of Gabby (Tim Watts) who seeks solace in Melissa’s (Adriane Daff) home to mend her broken heart and reinvent her life. But when Gabby’s fierce alter ego becomes the object of Melissa’s affections, their blissful playground breaks apart at the seams.
The Big Spaghetti held its World Premiere at the Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July 2018. It subsequently screened at the 2018 Next Gen Webfest, winning Best Director for Zoe, Best Actress for Adriane and Best Editing.
Founded in 1995 by a group of indie filmmakers, Slamdance runs concurrently with Sundance Film Festival in Utah every January and focuses on emerging filmmakers and low-budget independent films. The festival boasts a slew of acclaimed alumni including Christopher Nolan, Lena Dunham, Lynn Shelton and Bong Joon Ho.
"Slamdance's ongoing commitment to first-time filmmakers provides an opportunity to be cherished. The festival was a legitimate platform to get my work out there during a time when no one was asking to see it." — Christopher Nolan
The Slamdance Film Festival 2019 will run from January 25 - 31 in Park City, Utah.
