“The Song of Sway Lake” Now Playing Festivals Worldwide
“ENGAGING” – Variety
“The Song of Sway Lake” sees Ollie Sway, a young jazz enthusiast, forced to confront his own emotions and dysfunctional family relationships in the wake of his father’s suicide as he and his outlandish Russian friend scheme to steal a rare record from his grandmother.
Since the Los Angeles Film Festival premiere, “The Song of Sway Lake” has screened nationally and internationally at festivals such as the Norwegian International Film Festival, the Sidewalk Film Festival, and Oaxaca Film Festival.
The film was recently awarded the “2017 LIFF Pick” Award at Laughlin Film Festival in Laughlin, Nevada following two screenings on Thursday, October 12th and Saturday, October 14th.
Most recently, “The Song of Sway Lake” was featured at Woodstock Film Festival in Woodstock, New York. The film’s star, Rory Culkin was in attendance, among others. Variety described the film as “engaging” following the screening at Woodstock Film Festival (Mitch Myers, Variety).
Also screened at Woodstock Film Festival was “40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie”. This documentary from veteran television producer Lee Aronsohn (“The Big Bang Theory“, “Two and a Half Men”) sees the reunion of “Magic Music” a local Colorado soft rock band that seemed to have disappeared with the era after a series of lost opportunities.
Social Construct Films Founder / Producer Zak Kilberg served as a producer’s rep at the “Magic Music” screening via SmithDehn. The film’s premiere screening sold out during the closing night at Woodstock Film Festival and earned an emotional reception from audience members young and old. “Magic Music” was also mentioned in Variety wherein it was described as being “in the spirit of Woodstock”.
