Named #1 film festival by USA Today’s readers, Cinequest announced its international lineup of dramatic and documentary competition films for the next edition of the popular California winter event, taking place March 3-15, 2020 in San Jose and Redwood City, CA.
More than 105,000 attendees will experience the work of internationally renowned and emerging artists and technologists this year at Cinequest Film & VR Festival. Representing a spectrum of genres, genders, ethnicities, orientations, and viewpoints, this year’s lineup is not to be missed – including the queer-themed horror stoner comedy, Road Head from the producers of the acclaimed Sick For Toys.
Road Head’s world premiere will take place on March 7th, with screenings to follow on March 8th, 13th, and the 15th.
A Nine Ten Films and Delco-Cut co-production, Road Head tells the story of three friends who take a road trip to the Mojave-desert where their complicated relationships are pushed to their breaking point as the group encounters a reclusive, murderous cult.
Directed by David Del Rio, the film stars Clayton Farris, Damian Joseph Quinn, Adam Nemet and Elizabeth Grullon (known for playing the villain in the new Star War Video game).
“I’m honored to be included in such a highly respected film festival that will help bring widespread exposure to our film, and leave our audience with an amazing experience,” says David Gunning, co-producer of Road Head.
“I am beyond thrilled to showcase our film at Cinequest! The combination of creativity and innovation makes for an exciting event; experiencing new technologies that go beyond film. I hope the audience is surprised by Road Head! Not in what the film reveals as the “twist;” but working with audience expectations of what this film is based on, the ridiculousness of the concept, starting with even the playful title “Road Head”. I hope the audience feels surprised by how much more they will see in the film,” comments filmmaker David Del Rio.
“Cinequest has been on our radar since our first short film in 2012. We are thrilled to debut our feature film ROAD HEAD at Cinequest 2020; and we hope audiences have a blast watching this ridiculous, poignant and genre bending film!” adds co-producer Jon Paul Burkhart
