The Last Film Festival

Hollywood rebel Dennis Hopper (1936-2010) – featured in Jocks&Nerds Issue 11 – tragically passed away during the filming of his final film, aptly named The Last Film Festival. Directed by Linda Yellen, the story follows the story of Hollywood producer Nick Twain (played by Dennis Hopper), whose recent flop of a film is accepted in just one film festival – the badly organised O’Hi Film Festival. Yellen has launched a campaign through Kickstarter to raise funds for the post-production of The Last Film Festival. The funds raised will help pay for the rights to use footage from other motion pictures, edit the movie and add special effects to complete the film’s narrative.
