FilmBuff and Sunnyside Films announce the release of feel-good summer comedy THE WEEKEND, directed by Brian Avers (whose acting credits include Rock N' Roll, Lieutenant of Inishmore, King Lear and recent hit premiere The Explorer's Club at MTC), and featuring a cast of celebrated young New York actors including Heather Lind (The Merchant of Venice, Pygmalion), Carson Elrod (The Explorer's Club, All in the Timing, Peter & the Starcatcher), Bhavesh Patel (War Horse), Vayu O'Donnell (Man and Boy, Golden Boy), Amber Gray (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), and more!
Before their childhood friends get married and move across the country, eight summer campers (and a few disoriented newbies) take over a rental cottage in upstate New York for one last weekend of fun in the sun!
Written by the full cast & creative team, and shot entirely in real-time, this romantic character comedy is truthful, spontaneous, and hilariously funny. In the spirit of The Big Chill, Breakfast Club, and Wet Hot American Summer, this ensemble film perfectly captures the experience of growing up and growing apart from those you will always call friends.
FilmBuff has established itself as a leading digital entertainment curator of the best in indie cinema. Sunnyside Films, a quickly growing independent film company founded by producer Michael Izquierdo, also produced the hit web-series iChannel, award- winning feature drama The Last Day of August, and upcoming horror film Viscera.
