FYRE FRAUD NOW STREAMING ON HULU

CONTAINING EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS WITH EVENT ORGANIZER, BILLY MCFARLAND, HULU’S ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE FAILED MUSIC FESTIVAL THAT SWINDLED THOUSANDS IS NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM

SYNOPSIS:

The Fyre Festival was the defining scam of the millennial generation, at the nexus of social media influence, late-stage capitalism, and morality in the post-truth era. Marketing for the 2017 music event went viral with the help of rapper Ja Rule, instagram stars, and models, but turned epic fail after stranding thousands in the Bahamas. Featuring an exclusive interview with Billy McFarland, the convicted con-man behind the festival; FYRE FRAUD is a true-crime comedy bolstered by a cast of whistleblowers, victims, and insiders going beyond the spectacle to uncover the power of FOMO and an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and a lack of accountability in the digital age. 

CREDITS:

Emmy™ nominated and Peabody™ award-winning directors Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason executive produce along with Michael Gasparro, The Cinemart, MIC and Billboard.

DIRECTORS STATEMENT:

FYRE FRAUD is more than the story of a failed music festival in the Bahamas - this dark comedy is a cautionary tale for a generation.

Billy McFarland offers us a window into the mind of a con artist, the insidious charm of the fraudster and how they can capture our imaginations, our investment, and our votes in the age of Trump. McFarland’s staggering ambition metastasized in a petri dish of late-stage capitalism, corporate greed, and predatory branding, all weaponized by our fear of missing out.

Our aim was to set the stage for a strange journey into the moral abyss of our digital age, going beyond the meme to show an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and willing to look the other way, for their own gain.

We draw on countless cultural references, on true crime tension, and on humor - but we did not intend to create a toothless comedy about the Fyre Festival. We hope this film can pierce our collective apathy and disrupt our own millennial peers, if only for an instant - to look at these stories for what they truly are, and to halt this algorithm before it devours us whole.

First Global LGBTQ Streaming Network Launches Equity Crowdfunding Campaign on SeedInvest

First global LGBTQ+ streaming network, Revry, makes investing in the queer community a family affair by launching an equity crowdfunding campaign on SeedInvest (https://www.seedinvest.com/revry/seed).   Revry's  streaming network brings the queer experience to the world through its diverse mix of films, series, music, podcasts and originals.  Revry is committed to inclusion and creating a space for all voices in the LGBTQ+ community to be seen and heard.

"SeedInvest is excited to be working with such a diverse, passionate team of founders who are creating something meaningful for a historically marginalized community,” says SeedInvest’s Alexandra Tynion. "Not only that, but partnering with SeedInvest gives the company the unique opportunity to give its users and loyal brand advocates the ability to become investors while it's still a private company. This means early investors can support and be a part of the company's growth for the long run."

“We started Revry because we saw the need for truly authentic entertainment made for the ever-growing queer community as it is: diverse, outrageous, groundbreaking, and global,” shares Revry CEO Damian Pelliccione.  “In the past, TV channels and VOD services that claimed to represent queer people tended to water down our community, often only focusing on gay white males and superficial stories.  Given the size of the LGBTQ+ market ($917 billion in the US and $3.7 trillion worldwide), luckily the new digital age of TV has created an opportunity to disrupt the old TV model and to introduce new upstart voices into the mix to redefine niche TV for a new generation.”

Revry aims to be the new voice of queer entertainment. More than just TV and film, Revry is breaking the mold by showcasing LGBTQ+ music artists, short films, digital series, and boasting one of the largest queer podcast networks in the world. More than a simple content platform for a niche audience, Revry is a community - a lifestyle brand, with a mission not just to distribute LGBTQ-themed content, but share genuine queer culture with the world. To that end, Revry is currently available via 7 native apps, 3 linear channels (Pluto TV, XUMO, and Zapping TV), expanding into over 100+ countries, with a reach of 35 million, closing hundreds of content contracts totaling over 4000 hours, and streaming over 21 million minutes to its global audience.

Revry’s target audiences are those who identify as LGBTQ+ and are primarily millennial and generation Z (between the ages of 18-35). Currently, 50% of Revry's core audiences are located in the U.S. with the other 50% spread out across the world with their highest international traffic coming from the markets of Brazil, India, and China.

Since its launch, Revry's unique mission, diverse team of founders, and innovative approach to distribution have been covered by major media outlets including WIRED MagazineMacWorld, and The Hollywood Reporter.  This year, Tubefilter stated "Revry is making its mark in the niche SVOD world” and Instinct Magazine has written that Revry is “dedicated to showcasing the best entertainment spanning the breadth of the entire queer experience."

Revry has continually paved the way as a leader, not only in the LGBTQ+ space but in the ever-changing mainstream streaming world. One of the first networks to stage an exclusive release of an original series through the new Instagram-powered IGTV app, Revry was featured by TheWrap only last month.  Additionally, Revry’s high profile collaborations with industry heavy-weights like Funny or Die, with whom Revry co-produced an Emmy nominated series GAY OF THRONES, have garnered the company significant mainstream attention.  Revry continues to make impressive collaborations including having recently entering a 2-year deal with the LGBTQ suicide prevention not-for-profit, The Trevor Project, to be their Official Streaming Network and exclusive live streaming partner for their star-studded award show, TrevorLIVE, that just honored industry legend Ryan Murphy amongst others.

Dedicated to their global LGBTQ+ community, Revry saw crowdfunding with SeedInvest as an opportunity to not only engage but allow the LGBTQ+ community to be invested in themselves.  

About SeedInvest

SeedInvest is a leading equity crowdfunding platform that provides individual investors with access to pre-vetted startup investment opportunities and has only accepted 1% of those companies to feature on the platform. For more information, visit www.seedinvest.com

IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK

 

Academy Award-winning writer/director Barry Jenkins' first film since the Best Picture Oscar-winning Moonlight is If Beale Street Could Talk, his adaptation of James Baldwin's novel - the first English-language feature film based on the work of the author, to whom the movie is dedicated.

 

Set in early-1970s Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple's unbreakable bond and the African-American family's empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish Rivers (screen newcomer KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny (Stephan James). Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.

Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, If Beale Street Could Talk honors the author's prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as the filmmaker poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure.

As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories.

'TO DUST' w/ Géza Röhrig & Matthew Broderick - TRAILER PREMIERE

TO DUST

A Film by Shawn Snyder

About a Hasidic cantor’s struggles to find religious solace after his wife’s untimely death, while secretly obsessing over how her body will decay.

IN THEATERS FEBRUARY 8TH

“Shmuel and Albert may be the funniest odd couple since Broderick and Nathan Lane’s Leo Bloom and Max Bialystock.”

– Barbara Hoffman, NY POST

“Broderick, as a Jethro Tull-obsessed stoner, is mind-shattering.”

– Joshua Rothkopf, TIME OUT NEW YORK

Shawn Snyder’s TO DUST premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, followed by screenings at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival and the Hamptons International Film Festival. This feature film debut from Snyder is tells the tale of Shmuel, a Hasidic cantor in Upstate New York, who is distraught by the untimely death of his wife, Rivkah. As he struggles to find solace in his religion, which proffers a stringent timeline for grief, Shmuel grows increasingly haunted by visions of Rivkah’s decomposing corpse. Convinced that her soul will suffer until her body returns to dust, Shmuel decides that to stop his feverish spiral he must seek an understanding of the physical processes of her decay - despite the blasphemy inherent in any scientific inquiry. Risking discovery and expulsion, Shmuel tip-toes outside his enclave, where his search leads to Albert, a bumbling biology professor at the local community college. Soon, Albert is unwittingly seduced into an odd world of homespun forensic research and begins to guide Shmuel through outrageous experiments that aim to approximate a timeline for Rivkah’s dissolution - starting with the theft, suffocation and burial of a pig. As amateur scientists practicing imperfect science and incompetent criminals on progressively absurd outings, the two find themselves neck-deep in genres in which neither of them belongs. With their macabre moonlit misadventures growing ever more perilous, the odd couple will stop at nothing to satiate their curiosity and ultimately find Shmuel the comfort he desperately seeks. 92min.
