Soho filmfest to kick off with Filipino-directed Germany-based drama
Diane Ventura won Best Director for her film Deine Farbe (Your Color) at the just-concluded Calella Film Festival (CFF) in Spain with her stars Jannik Schumann and Nyamandi Adrian sharing the Best Actor award.
Tomorrow, Oct. 15, Deine Farbe will have its much-awaited U.S. premiere at this year’s Soho International Film Festival (SIFF) as the opening film under the World Feature banner happening via livestream at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Besting almost a hundred hopefuls for the inaugural honors, Ventura’s interracial friendship drama is one of only two front-facers (the other being an American feature) during the festival’s kick-off. After that, Deine Farbe will have two regular screenings: on Oct. 15 at 12 p.m., and once more on Oct. 22 at 11:45 p.m.
