The SOHO International Film Festival, taking place at Village East Cinemas located at 189 2nd Avenue on 12th Street from June 14 to the 21st, brings a cavalcade of films and stars to NYC. The SOHO International Film Festival, which proudly carries the “Made in NY” logo from the NYC Mayor’s Office of Film, Television and Broadcasting is a vehicle to help the economy of the city, enhancing the festival’s sense of pride while boosting filmmaking and tourism in the Big Apple.
Features, shorts, and documentaries fill the proceedings. Films being shown include Moss, starring male supermodel-turned-actor Mitchell Slaggert, a road movie on a river about a young man who disappears into the woods on his eighteenth birthday to find himself. In Farmer of the Year, a grandfather tries to recapture his youth by road tripping with his unemployed granddaughter in a dilapidated Winnebago to his WWII reunion while desperately trying to find a date to impress his old army buddies. In the sexually charged Daddy Issues, Maya, a talented queer artist cyberstalks the alluring Jasmine; an aspiring designer in an emotionally charged, co-dependent relationship with a neurotic sugar daddy. When Maya and Jasmine’s paths finally cross, it leads to a bizarre love triangle.The festival closes with Edouard Salier’s Cabeza Madre (Mother’s Head), a suspenseful thriller/black comedy set against the dreamy and vibrant backdrop of Cuba.
