Director Jennifer DeLia is bringing her Austin-shot movie “Billy Bates” to Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar 7 p.m. Nov. 12 for a free screening.
Starring James Wirt and Austin actress Savannah Welch (Boyhood, Tree of Life, part of the Austin band The Trishas), “Billy Bates” blends narrative and documentary-style in a portrait of an artist. The movie release is set via Go Digital for November 18.
Here is the Facebook link and the Twitter link to the event. The free screening includes a Q & A and reception with the filmmakers and an after-party at C-Boys with a performance by the Trishas, who have not been playing out much of late.
DeLia, Wirt and her producer Julie Pacino are also working on a biopic about Hollywood legend Mary Pickford (to be directed by DeLia and set to star Lily Rabe, Michael Pitt, Julia Stiles, Ryan Simpkins, and Wirt).
