New Visual's Step Into Liquid To Premier at No Dance Film Festival.
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 16, 2003
NV Entertainment, a subsidiary of New Visual Corporation (OTCBB:NVEI), announced today that it has accepted an invitation for a special screening of Step Into Liquid at the No Dance Film Festival.
The Festival, which has recently been closely aligned with highly acclaimed actor/director Forrest Whitaker, runs Jan. 18-24, 2003 in Park City, Utah. The special screening of Step Into Liquid is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2003 at 8pm.
Held in Park City roughly the same time as the Sundance, Slam Dance and X-Dance festivals, No Dance is a digital film festival that promotes independent feature films, shorts and documentaries. This year's No Dance will be the first year Forrest Whitaker has taken a prominent association with the festival. Whitaker's actor credits include Panic Room (2002), Good Morning Vietnam (1987), Platoon (1986), The Color of Money (1986) and The Crying Game (1992). In addition to chairing No Dance, Whitaker is a grand jury member, or judge, for the 2003 Sundance Festival. Among those at the No Dance Festival this year are two Mike Figgis films, whose directorial credits include Leaving Las Vegas (1995) and Internal Affairs (1990).
The No Dance screening is part of New Visual's efforts to market Step Into Liquid. It follows multiple demonstrations of Microsoft's Windows Media 9 using the film's trailer and precedes a benefit screening for the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum in February.
"Although I had never surfed before, I found this film compelling not only because it transcends both surf and world cultures, but because it exposes what lies at the most primitive inner core of surfing, spirituality," said Forrest Whitaker.
