I am really looking forward to going to the cast and crew screening of ALTAR at the end of the month. The Film is going to the Toronto Film Festival 2014 . Here is a bit from Screen Yorkshire:-
Altar is written and directed by Nick Willing (Neverland, Close Your Eyes, Alice In Wonderland) and produced byMichele Camarda (Wonderland, Close Your Eyes, This Year’s Love). Adam Thomas Wright (The Physician, The Awakening) Antonia Clarke, (Les Miserables). Steve Oram (Sightseers). American artist, Alec Hamilton, Mathew Modine , (Full Metal Jacket, The Dark Knight Rises), his British wife Olivia Williams, (An Education, The Ghost Writer) and their two children begin renovation work at a remote English estate where strange things begin to happen. Years ago, the estate’s owner killed his wife in a demonic ritual, and exacted her revenge by haunting him, driving him to madness and suicide. As the new family takes possession of the house, something takes possession of Alec—artistically, physically and spiritually—and he is now bent on recreating the ritual.
Executive producer is Robert Halmi Sr. who spearheads the production, comprising The Halmi Company and Great Point Media (where Robert Halmi Jr execs) in association with Sandover Productions. The feature is supported with investment from Screen Yorkshire through the European Regional Development Fund. Executive producers alongside Robert Halmi Sr are Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve for Great Point Media and Hugo Heppell for Screen Yorkshire. Content Film is handling distribution and is expected to premiere Altar at the Toronto Film Festival
