VIDEO: Trailer - THE LITTLE TIN MAN, Set for 2013 Seattle International Film Festival Tonight

Financed by a passionate fan base through Kickstarter, The Little Tin Man is a small, indie darling with bi­­g upside. The film will premiere at the 39th Annual Seattle International Film Festival today, June 1st and tomorrow, June 2nd, 2013. Check out the trailer below!

The Little Tin Man is the heartfelt story of Herman Mitchell, a struggling dwarf actor who is tired of being "overlooked" for bigger roles. Determined to be viewed as a leading man, Herman sets out to be cast as the Tin Man in Martin Scorsese's remake of The Wizard of Oz. Think Tootsie for a new generation. Comedian-Filmmaker David Wain calls it, "A funny and touching look into a side of show business that most of us never think about."

Newcomer Aaron Beelner stars alongside Kay Cannon (Writer/Producer of Pitch Perfect, New Girl, 30 Rock), making her lead acting debut as Herman's average-sized best friend, Miller. The cast also features Jeff Hiller (30 Rock, Ghost Town), Chris Henry Coffey (Trust, The Good Wife), Michael McGlone (The Brothers McMullen, Person of Interest) and many hilarious favorites from the renowned Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and Broadway.

The film was written by Dugan Bridges & Matthew Perkins and marks Perkins' directorial debut. Daily Candy Editor Jay Blades describes the film as, "A big-hearted little movie about (literally) reaching for the stars."

The film's world premiere will be at the SIFF Cinema Uptown Theater tonight, June 1st at 6:30PM with a repeat matinee on Sunday, June 2nd at 12:30PM.
