IFC FILMS PICKS UP GIA COPPOLA’S ‘MAINSTREAM’ STARRING ACADEMY AWARD® NOMINEE ANDREW GARFIELD AND MAYA HAWKE


 IFC Films announced today that they are acquiring North American rights to Gia Coppola’s sophomore feature MAINSTREAM, starring Academy Award® nominee and Tony Award® winner Andrew Garfield (HACKSAW RIDGE, UNDER THE SILVER LAKE), Maya Hawke (ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, STRANGER THINGS), Nat Wolff (PALO ALTO, FAULT IN OUR STARS), Johnny Knoxville (JACKASS, BAD GRANDPA), Jason Schwartzman (RUSHMORE, DARJEELING LIMITED, and Alexa Demie (EUPHORIA, WAVES). 

The film was co-written by Coppola and Tom Stuart and marks Coppola’s follow-up to her breakout feature PALO ALTO (2013). MAINSTREAM is produced by Fred Berger of Automatik, Lauren Bratman, Gia Coppola of American Zoetrope, Andrew Garfield, Jack Heller and Scott Veltri of Assemble Media, Siena Oberman of Artemis, Francisco Rebelo De Andrade, Enrico Saravia, Alan Terpins of Tugawood, and Zac Weinstein of Dynasty. 

The film had its World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival 2020 and was also selected for the Telluride Film Festival 2020. IFC Films will release the film on May 7, 2021 in select theaters and on demand.

In MAINSTREAM, a young woman (Maya Hawke) thinks she’s found a path to internet stardom when she starts making YouTube videos with a charismatic stranger (Andrew Garfield) – until the dark side of viral celebrity threatens to ruin them both.

Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films said, “Gia Coppola’s MAINSTREAM is a bold and innovative film that captures the excitement and discord of the current social media environs with an entertaining wit. We are thrilled to partner with Gia and her great producing team to bring these viral worthy performances to theaters and digital this summer.”

Director Gia Coppola added, "I’m very excited to partner with the IFC team. Not only have they worked with filmmakers and projects I deeply admire, but I really love and appreciate their innovative ideas on the film’s release. I’m so proud of everyone involved in the making of this movie, and I especially can’t wait for people to see Andrew’s radical performance!”

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in.
