APS Films has announced the next screening of Zack Wilcox’s Hunting Lands at the 19th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival that runs from April 30, 2018, to May 3rd.
Set and shot in the backdrop of a Midwestern winter, the film centers a group of young actors on a collision course with each other and destiny.
Following the world premiere at this year’s Cinequest VR & Film Festival, Hunting Lands won Best Screenplay and Best Picture at Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema and screened at the Beverly Hills Film Festival.
Marshall Cook (Division III: Football’s Finest), Joe Raffa (You’ll Know My Name) and Keyna Reynolds (Moving Parts) star. Zack Wilcox directed from a script he penned alongside cinematographer and executive producer Edwin Stevens (HBO’s “The Defiant Ones”).
In the film, “Reclusive veteran Frank Olsen yearns to escape from the complexities of the modern world. Unfortunately, despite his efforts, the world comes looking for him. When he discovers a discarded, beaten woman fighting for her life in the snow, Frank must decide whether to continue to turn his back on society or confront the world he loathes.”
