A Word from Gabi
BIFF has always been dedicated to supporting the independent filmmakers of today. We are happy to share this note and news from Sophia Takal producer and star of the wonderful ensemble comedy-drama by the name of Gabi on the Roof in July which played at our festival this year in the Fresh Vision: narrative feature competition section.
This is so exciting! Gabi on the Roof in July is available through Warner Brothers on Video on Demand and on iTunes and Amazon.com and lots of other platforms starting TODAY! This means you can rent / buy the movie on your TV or computer. You can even buy our movie on Walmart.com!
Gabi on the Roof in July stars Sophia Takal, Lawrence Michael Levine, Brooke Bloom, Louis Cancelmi, Amy Seimetz, Kate Lyn Sheil and Robert White! It features Lena Dunham, Jay DiPietro, Kevin Barker and a whole lot more tremendously talented people! Here are some things people have said about the film:
“Expertly orchestrated….Gabi may rack up converts to bare-bones, improv-style cinema.” – Ronnie Scheib, VARIETY
“Levine deploys a poised eye and witty dialogue that sticks like a needle left sitting on a cushion…Wisely observant of human nature as it bounces between the leads, “Gabi” evokes Woody Allen with a more generous heart (and a lot more casual nudity).” – Steve Dollar, WALL STREET JOURNAL
“Gabi evokes a New York sentimentalist tradition that mixes the edge of golden era Cassavettes with the nostalgia of Woody Allen…The world of Gabi is deeply realized, surprising and full of energy” – Sara Schieron, BOX OFFICE MAGAZINE
