Starring cast includes Dennis Hopper, Jacqueline Bisset, Chris Kattan, JoBeth Williams and Leelee Sobieski

Los Angeles, CA (October 11, 2016) Following its U.S. theatrical monterey media is proud to announce the October 25th Digital Download, DVD & VOD release of Linda Yellen's Comedy The Last Film Festival starring the late two-time Academy Award nominee Dennis Hopper (Hoosiers, Easy Rider, Blue Velvet, Speed, Apocalypse Now), Golden Globe Winner Jacqueline Bisset (The Deep, Bullitt, Murder on the Orient Express, "Dancing on the Edge", "Joan of Arc"), Saturday Night Live's Chris Kattan (A Night at the Roxbury, "The Middle"), Academy Award & Golden Globe nominee JoBeth Williams (Poltergeist, Kramer vs. Kramer, "Dexter") and Golden Globe nominee Leelee Sobieski ("Joan of Arc", "Uprising", The Glass House, 88 Minutes).

"Hugely amusing indie. This is farce, taken to a surreal level, both broad and intimate. Without a doubt the movie belongs to its two most famous actors, Hopper and Bisset. Hopper rarely played comedy... but there's something else in his performance, a humor and self-awareness that is both endearing and very attractive. As for Jackie, she revamps herself here as an Italian bombshell. She is a scream. In some ways it comes off like a smaller version of Robert Altman's acclaimed ‘The Player'."
- Liz Smith

"It's always a treat to see polished pros like Dennis Hopper and the ravishing Jacqueline Bisset in high gear and they plunge ahead in full throttle in ‘The Last Film Festival'. For anyone who has ever endured the follies of film festival, this movie is a lot of fun"

"This film is a laugh-out-loud riot. Dennis Hopper's last movie, exuberant as it is, shows what a brilliant actor he was."
- The Huffington Post

"A madcap comedy"
- Paste Magazine

About The Last Film Festival
There are over 4,000 film festivals around the world. Where would you go if your film was turned down by 3,999 of them?. When an obscure film festival is the last hope for failing producer (Dennis Hopper) and his "disaster" of a movie collide with the homespun innocence of small town America, neither will ever be the same.
