Coyote Film Festival to screen 'Sherman's Way'

MIDDLETOWN – Lake County's independent film festival – EcoArts' Coyote Film Festival – has arranged to bring “Sherman's Way,” a full-length feature film, to Lake County for three screenings so Lake County residents can see the beauty of Lake County on the big screen in this comedy/drama.

During the summer of 2006, this feature-length film, “Sherman's Way,” was filmed in Lake County.

The film premiered at the San Jose Cinequest Film Festival in February and has been on the film festival circuit. While shooting in Lake County, the producers filmed at several local businesses, including shops along Main Street in Kelseyville (including Studebakers Coffee House, Kelseyville Drug, and Affordable Travel); Library Park; Lampson Field; and the Ford dealership in Lakeport; as
well as on site at Langtry Estate and Vineyards in Middletown.

Following each screening of the film, director Craig Saavedra will answer questions from the audience. The lead character, Sherman, played by Michael Shulman, also may be in attendance.

The Coyote Film Festival is a fundraising program for EcoArts of Lake County, which produces the annual Sculpture Walk at the Middletown Trailside Nature Preserve Park in Middletown. The Sculpture Walk is free and open to the public June through October of each year.

Seating is limited to 75 people maximum per screening, so preordering tickets is recommended. The first showing will be Friday, Sept. 19, at 8 p.m. with two shows on Saturday, Sept. 20, at 4 p.m. and
8 p.m.

The film will be screened at Calpine Geothermal Visitors Center, 15500 Central Park Road, Middletown. The cost is $10 for adults; $5 for youth 16 and under with an adult. The film has not been rated.

To preorder tickets, call 928-0323 and leave a message detailing the show date, time, and number of tickets. Tickets will be held for payment and pickup at the door.
