Gravitas will release the film theatrically in the U.S. in late Q1/early Q2 2018, and Kaleidoscope Entertainment will release the film theatrically in the UK.

Based on an original script co-written by Rideout and Josh Epstein, Public Schooled follows socially awkward Liam (Doheny), who has been homeschooled his entire life. When he falls in love with a popular one-legged girl (Williams), he abandons his mother’s (Greer) suffocating love and enrolls in public school, getting a crash course in sex, drugs and social mayhem.  Epstein produced the film, with Adam Folk co-producing and Justine Whyte executive producing.

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
