Perez selected as 2017 PTFF Film Fellow

Filmmaker Andrew Perez has been selected by the Port Townsend Film Festival as its 2017 Film Fellow. A director, actor and screenwriter, Perez is the fourth recipient of a festival fellowship, according to a press release.

Perez is to begin his fellowship Dec. 26 to work on his second screenplay, and is to stay at a private residence in Port Townsend. “I’m truly excited to return to Port Townsend,” said Perez, “where my experience screening ‘Bastards y Diablos’ and performing ‘The Aliens’ [at Key City Theatre] was a true highlight of 2016 to me. The entire weekend there, I felt dizzy with creative energy, so I cannot wait to spend time harnessing that energy into a brand-new screenplay.”

“My Scientology Movie,” for which Perez received critical praise for his role as the Church of Scientology’s controversial leader, David Miscavige, opens in theaters March 3.

The festival offers an extended residency to one filmmaker each year, thanks to the vision of the festival’s board of directors and generosity of the community.

“The festival believes that support of artists, as they create, is as important as screening their work,” said PTFF executive director Janette Force in a press release.

“Creating a film fellowship program is just the sort of growth that we hoped to attain when the festival began 17 years ago. Independent film voices are more essential than ever before.”
