Tim Sutton, a native Cazenovian and acclaimed filmmaker, was notified his recent work “Pavilion” was accepted into the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin Texas, where it will make its world premiere.
“It’s a thrilling result for all of the hard work and collaboration put forth by a great group of artists and friends,” Sutton said.
The 72-minute art film stars numerous Cazenovian actors, including Addie Bartlett and Max Schaffner. Sutton describes the film as “a dreamy film about the lives of teenagers” set in Upstate New York and the arid climate of Arizona.
The film was shot on location in both Cazenovia and Chandler, Ariz.
“We believe in this film,” Sutton said. “With the lush cinematography of Chris Dapkins, the bold and stylized editing of Seth Bomse, a haunting score from indie star Sam Prekop, otherworldly digital design from Caspar Newbolt, and incredible support from the staff, team and mentors at the Independent Filmmaker Project ... what’s not to believe in?”
The SXSW Film Festival is held March 9 through 13. Sutton is also looking to participate in the Tribeca Film Festival.
