PATROL by John Patton Ford (which you may have caught in the Hollywood Film Festival at the Arclight Hollywood in October) has gone on to be selected for the shorts lineup at Sundance 2010.
This year’s 70 short films from U.S. and international filmmakers were selected from 6,092 submissions.
Todd Banhazl’s cinematography (which looked great on the huge Arclight screen) captures all the honesty in the subtle performances by the cast. Unless the Park City audiences have hearts of stone, they are bound to be impressed by this sincerely delivered story of a divorced security guard (the super solid Daniel Jones) struggling to impress his son.
Check the Ticket Booth periodically for updates on the Sundance Festival  screening.
