CAST & CREW TO ATTEND WELLINGTON PREMIERE OF FEATURE FILM ‘ETERNITY’
The Wellington Premiere of Eternity, Alex Galvin’s sci-fi mystery film, will be held at the Paramount Theatre at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 27 March and will be attended by the majority of the New Zealand cast and crew according to the film’s director Alex Galvin.
“While the New Zealand premiere was held in the Hawke’s Bay late last year, as part of the Food & Wine Festival, this Premiere is a homecoming for many of our cast and crew who are Wellingtonians. This is our chance to show our friends and family what we’ve accomplished,” Alex Galvin said.
Eternity is a sci-fi thriller set in the near future. A police detective, taking part in a computer simulation, must solve a seemingly impossible murder mystery to save his own life. Filming took place in Wellington, on the Kapiti Coast, Hawke’s Bay and Hong Kong.
The film has already achieved critical success overseas. It has its Wold Premiere at the Saint-Tropez Film Festival (where it had the highest attendance of any film at the festival) and has also just won the Special Jury Prize at the California Film Awards and screened at the Boston Sci-Fi Festival. In May, it will screen at the Cannes des Antipodes, as part of the Cannes Film Festival.
Eternity is Alex Galvin’s second feature film and follows When Night Falls (2007), which was set and shot in the Wairarapa and Wellington.
Eternity is scheduled for cinematic distribution throughout New Zealand following the Wellington premiere.
Alex Galvin said, “Tickets for the Wellington premiere are selling fast and we anticipate we will have a full-house on the 27 March, the film will then screen exclusively in Wellington at the Paramount for all of April and in other centres from mid-April onwards.(to be confirmed)”
