Iowa Independent Film Festival

It’s official! This year’s special guests at the IIFF are Director/Actor Richard Benjamin (Catch 22, The Sunshine Boys and Goodbye, Columbus) and wife actress Paula Prentiss (The Stepford Wives and Where The Boys Are) and director Randal Kleiser (Big Top PeeWee and The Blue Lagoon).

Kleiser will be bringing his virtual reality film, Defrost, which showed earlier this year at the Sundance Festival and was produced by festival co-founder Tanna Frederick who is also a member of the cast.

Also this year we’ll be showing the documentary film, Movie Star: The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg, made by festival favorites Kelly and Tammy Rundle and Garry McGee, about the life of the young actress who was born in Marshalltown and went onto international fame and notoriety.

Henry Jaglom’s latest film, Ovation, which stars Tanna Frederick and has been getting strong reviews will be shown on Saturday night. Many of the other selected films have a strong Iowa connection.

Perhaps the biggest news is that admission to this year’s festival is free which is our way of welcoming as many people as we can to this important cultural event.
