Celebrity: Dominick Dunne
Film Art Media announced on Monday that they will be handling Australian distribution of the documentary film, Celebrity: Dominick Dunne, a MIFF Premiere Fund Film which was voted as one of MIFF08's most popular documentaries in the Audience Poll and has been selected for the prestigious Hamptons International Film Festival and Sheffield International Documentary Festival.
Hollywood outcast, best-selling author and chronicler of the rich and famous, Dominick Dunne is one of the world's leading journalists and society commentators. The 84 minute feature from directors Timothy Jolley and Kirsty de Garis, principals of Road Trip Film, features extraordinary access to Dunne's world, including never-before-seen home video footage. For the first time, Dominick tells his own story revealing his journey from unlikely war hero, Hollywood producer and outcast, to special correspondent and defining ‘voice' of Vanity Fair magazine.
Celebrity: Dominick Dunne screenings commence on 23 October, so if you missed it at MIFF, check it out at selected quality cinemas including the Cinema Nova in Melbourne and Chauvel Cinema in Sydney. The Mercury Cinema in Adelaide will also be screening the film with dates for Perth, Darwin and Canberra still to be confirmed. Check local guides for details and look out for the DVD later in the year.
