When I was a kid, seeing footage of movie premieres at THE definitive Hollywood cinema was magical to me. Now confirmed ‘The Junket’ will have its world premiere right there! Walk of Fame, past home to the Oscars and where all the stars have their handprints. Excellent time-slot too! Tickets here: https://screamfestla.com/2021/film/junket
It’s with great pleasure I announce the illustrious Groove Q have joined The Junket for Music Composition and Sound Design. Their film scores have featured at Cannes Film Festival (Still Life), Berlin International Film Festival (The Wilding) and Sydney Film Festival. They’ve won countless awards at Tropfest, Promax and for their vast TV and experimental work including Burning Man. I can’t wait for them to bring their sonic wizardry to The Junket, a film deeply rooted in sound design.
