Starfish: Tom Riley and Joanne Froggatt confirmed for EIFF premiere

Great news for all Tom Riley fans, we should have more red carpet photos of Tom next week, at the premiere of Starfish. Several sources today shared the news that Tom and Joanne Froggatt will attend the premiere of Starfish at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on Thursday 16th June 2016. Interestingly, the EIFF website does NOT list Joanna Froggatt as attending, only Tom. Tickets for both the Starfish screenings are available to buy from the EIFF website. 

Organisers have also announced Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt will attend the world premiere of Starfish with Tom Riley (Doctor Who's Robots of Sherwood), at Cineworld on Thursday 16th June.

PUSHING DEAD uses its impeccable comic timing to burst preconceptions of how to approach HIV on the big screen. Positive for 22 years, Dan accidentally prices out of his health insurance plan after cashing a birthday check. Now he is left scrambling to access his medication. Writer-director Tom E. Brown paints drolly honest images packed with idiosyncratic charm. James Roday, Robin Weigert, Danny Glover, and Khandi Alexander gracefully bring this community of resilient recovery to life. Pre-Screening Reception: DGA Atrium

There will also be a screening in December at Reel Affirmations.

Pushing Dead: crafty screenwriting and a charismatic cast

A preview of Frameline 40 Festival next week has been included on this site, and includes Pushing Dead in its list of recommended films to see. Get your tickets here

"Pushing Dead"

The callousness of health care insurers and the lack of acceptance for being HIV-positive confront a San Francisco writer/bouncer (James Roday of TV's "Psych") dealing with San Francisco's changing ideology.

This entertaining, surprisingly humorous feature debut from Tom E. Brown gets a boost from crafty screenwriting and a charismatic cast that includes Danny Glover, Robin Weigert, Khandi Alexander and Tom Riley.

June 18, The Castro; June 21, the Elmwood
