THE SWEET REMAINS in Award-Winning FEATURE FILM!
THE INDEPENDENTS release has been rescheduled for FEB 26th, 2021 beginning with a special VIRTUAL CINEMA run exclusively with premiere arthouse chains LAEMMLE & ANGELIKA CINEMAS. Visit www.TheIndependentsFilm for tickets & details! (Including how to join the band for a special "virtual" premiere event on February 24th!)
Inspired by Rich, Greg & Brian's real-life experiences together as a band, the film tells the alternately comic and tragic story of 3 solo-artists who meet at a crossroads and discovery harmony... Made over several years in between the bands tours and other releases, The Independents debuted at the Santa Barbara Int'l Film Festival where The Hollywood Reporter hailed it "An extremely engaging film. An unconventional and sharply written script which subverts all the cliches of the star-is-born story.” (More early press here) It then won the jury prize for BEST FEATURE FILM at the Omaha Film Festival -- and has gone on to win audiences and plaudits at top festivals all over the U.S. The film's planned release and tour (originally May 2020) was postponed due to Covid-19, but has been rescheduled for a special VIRTUAL CINEMA release starting February 26, 2021! We can't go to the theaters right now-- but now the theater can come to you... Get your "virtual" tickets and WATCH THE TRAILER right now at TheIndependentsFilm.com.
Featuring original music by the Sweet Remains, the film is also features cameo performances from some great and well-known actors including RICHARD KIND, JAMES NAUGHTON, KELLI O'HARA, BOYD GAINES, CHRIS SULLIVAN, KEIRA NAUGHTON & GEORGE WENDT.
