Jeez, could things go any better for local director Lynn Shelton? Her third feature, Humpday, got into Sundance this past January. It's getting a mid-fest gala showcase position at SIFF (screening on Friday, June 5). It has a distribution deal for August release. And now, reports Northwest Film Forum (which produced the film), Humpday is headed to France, where it'll play in the Directors' Fortnight section of the Cannes Film Festival. (The film is about two straight dudes--one played by Joshua Leonard, pictured at left--who decide to do a gay porno together, all in the name of art.)
My advice to Shelton: Start buying lottery tickets now, because you can't possibly lose.
