The Nut Bar has assumed official sponsorship of the film version of “Mixed Nuts,” which will have its premiere screening this October during PIFF 2013.
In a joint statement released this morning, The Nut Bar and Lodgepole Productions confirmed that an agreement of sponsorship had been reached.
“We are delighted to announce the collaboration between The Nut Bar and Lodgepole Productions in bringing this wonderful film home to The Park this October. We look forward to having the opportunity to present the film and to interact with audience members during The Park Interspecial Film Festival,” the statement read in part.
This is the first time that the venerable Park shop has sponsored a film.
“We thought it was a perfect fit, so we approached them last year,” said the film’s producer, Victoria Sciurini.
“They didn’t need much convincing, though. It turns out they’re big fans of Millicent [Hayberry, the film’s star] and they’ve been terrific about the whole process. They are a very generous company,” she said.
“Mixed Nuts” will screen at The Park Cinema on Oct 2 and 3, 2013.
The Park Interspecial Film Festival Runs from October 1-5, 2013.
