SPRINGFIELD FILM PREMIERE
Springfield-based filmmakers Dave Heinzel and Emma Wilson will premiere their new short film, Sarah, at 8 p.m. this Saturday, March 4, at The Studio, located at 401 1/2 S. Grand Ave. West (due to demand, a second screening was added on March 11 – both screenings are sold out). Sarah stars Springfield High School senior Stella Cole as a 19-year-old girl coping with depression and the mundane environment of her small Midwestern hometown. The 20-minute film was shot at several locations around Springfield during January and February of this year. It is the first project for Heinzel and Wilson following their collaborative work on regionally popular web series “The Studio Show,” which focused on Springfield area arts and culture through a mix of interviews, short films, musical performances and sketch comedy. The series concluded its two-season run in December. After screening at The Studio, Sarah will be submitted to film festivals around the country.
