NanoTech Entertainment announced several live streaming events from the upcoming 36th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF) October 3-13, at venues throughout Marin County, California.
According to a release, in a special pre-Festival kick-off event, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo, along with actor Dane DeHaan and director Nimrod Antal will participate in an on-stage interview and audience Q&A moderated by the California Film Institute Executive Director and Mill Valley Film Festival Founder, Mark Fishkin immediately following the U.S. Public Premiere of Metallica Through The Never at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center in San Rafael, CA. This special kick-off event will be streamed live by NanoTech Entertainment over the NanoFlix network providing the stream to Televisions, Phones, Tablets and Computers.
In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with live performance footage of Metallica's most iconic songs - created exclusively for film - combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band's trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously. Picturehouse will release Metallica Through The Never in North America on September 27, exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D Theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4.
"We are very excited to have NanoTech providing the MVFF TV channel as well as the live stream to many of our events leading up to and during the festival," stated Fishkin. "The Metallica premiere is one of many exciting events that we have planned this year."
NanoTech Vice President Peter Crowley added "The Mill Valley Film Festival is one of the premiere film festivals and we are excited to be building our independent film festival channel around MVFF36. The Metallica event is an amazing way for us to kick off the live streaming events from the festival this year. We are excited for people from around the world to have access to watch the live video from this historic event as we continue to deliver The Future of Entertainment."
