Chicago (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Writer/director Stephen Lloyd Jackson says he’s delighted that his second movie installment of the ‘sex and race’ trilogy, Sable Fable, has been selected by the 49th Chicago International Film Festival to have its Chicago premiere next month.
Sable Fable has already scooped two grand jury awards at this year's 17th American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in Miami last June for best director and best narrative feature, both going to Stephen Lloyd Jackson for directing and producing the social drama movie.
The Chicago International Film Festival is the longest-running competitive film festival in North America. The Festival was started in 1964 by filmmaker and graphic artist Michael Kutza to provide an alternative to the commercial Hollywood movies that dominated the city’s theaters. The Festival opened in 1965 at the Carnegie Theater, where King Vidor, Bette Davis, and Stanley Kramer were honored for their contributions to American cinema. Since then, the Festival has grown to become a world-renowned annual event. The Festival is dedicated to fostering better understanding between cultures and to making a positive contribution to the art form of the moving image.
The lives of several couples intertwine through a complex web of love and infidelity in this intimate exploration of race and contemporary relationships. At the center of this romantic network is blogger Dark Mark, whose profile as a writer is growing as his penetrating essays on race relations earn him a regular magazine column and a book contract. When he leaves his girlfriend Vanessa for his white editor, a twisted, tragic fate awaits him and those he loves.
Sable Fable was shot in London over a period of 24 days last August. A crew of five was used: director, cinematographer, 1st assistant director, sound mixer and hair & make up artist.
The Chicago International Film Festival starts on October 10 – 24 2013. All film screenings are under on roof: AMC Theatres East 21, 322 E Illinois St. Chicago, IL 60610.
Sable Fable screening times are:
Fri Oct 18, 2013 at 8:00pm
Sun Oct 20, 2013 at 11:30am
Wed Oct 23, 2013 at 4:15pm
