The Last Film Festival is an American comedy film starring Dennis Hopper, Leelee Sobieski, Katrina Bowden, Chris Kattan and Jacqueline Bisset. It is written and directed by Linda Yellen. It was filmed in 2010, shortly before Hopper died.[2] After extensive delays, the film was finally released theatrically in Los Angeles on 30 September 2016, followed by a VOD release. Monterey Media acquired the distribution rights in June 2016.[3]

Plot synopsis[edit]

There are over 4,000 film festivals around the world. Where would you go if your film was turned down by 3,999 of them? When an obscure film festival is the last hope for a failing producer (Dennis Hopper) and his “disaster” of a movie collides with the homespun innocence of small town America, neither will ever be the same. Nick will do anything to get his film distributed, including manipulating his dysfunctional cast into attending the festival where Hollywood egos hilariously slam into small town politics.



The film has not yet received a rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, there have be a number of reviews from various sources. Liz Smith from The New York Social Diary called the film a "hugely amusing indie",[4] while the Huffington Post called it a "laugh-out-loud riot."[5]
