Dennis Hopper’s Final Film Hits the Croissette in Cannes

Cannes: May 12, 2018

NY-based sales company Glass House Distribution has just acquired Dennis Hopper’s final completed feature, the comedy,  The Last Film Festival. 

Written by Michael Leeds and Linda Yellen, and directed by Yellen, the comedy centers on a hapless movie producer, played by Hopper, and his desperate attempts to get his unwatchable movie into a film festival – any film festival.

There are 4,000 film festivals around the world, and Hopper’s film has been turned down by 3,999 of them. But when an obscure festival actually accepts it, the artifice and ruthlessness of Hollywood collides with the homespun innocence of small town America, and neither will ever be the same.

Golden Globe Winner, Jaqueline Bisset is hilarious as an extremely high maintenance movie star, and Academy Award Nominee, JoBeth Williams counters opposite the Hollywood interlopers as the town mayor.

A strong supporting also cast includes Golden Globe Nominee, Leelee Sobieski (Joan of Arc) as a stalker, as well as Katrina Bowden (30 Rock) and SNL veteran Chris Katan.

Glass House is offering The Last Film Festival to international buyers at the market in Cannes.

This is the company’s third visit to the festival. Their other titles include the comedy, Dropping the Soap, starring, Jane Lynch, the drama/comedy,The Outdoorsman, with Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live), and the recently completed and highly anticipated thriller, Trauma Therapy.
