The Boat Builder To Premiere 38th @DenverFilm

The Boat Builder will celebrate its Colorado Premiere at the 38th Denver Film Festival on Friday, November 13, 6:30pm at the UA Denver Pavilions.

In competition for the Festival's True Grit award for Best Colorado Produced Film, The Boat Builder is written and directed by Arnold Grossman and stars Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Taxi), Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), and David Lascher (Hey Dude, Sabrina the Teenage Witch)

The Boat Builder tells the story of Abner, played by Christopher Lloyd, an embittered old mariner and widower living a solitary life. Withdrawn from his family and the tight-knit community of his small marine town, he is a grumpy and unsociable man who seems to live in the past - only finding comfort in the countless hours spent building a sailboat in his yard. When neglected young orphan Rick, played by Tekola Cornetet, wanders onto Abner's property hiding from local bullies, the two find common ground and form an unlikely bond which changes their lives in unexpected ways.


Preceding the Denver screenings, The Boat Builder will make its World Premiere on the Opening Night of the 30th Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival on November 6, 8:00pm at Cinema Paradiso-Fort Lauderdale. As part of the opening night celebrations, Christopher Lloyd will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Boat Builder will make its Colorado Premiere at the 38th Denver Film Festival on Friday, November 13, 6:30pm at the UA Denver Pavilions. In competition for the Festival's True Grit award for Best Colorado Produced Film, The Boat Builder will also screen on Saturday, November 14, 11:00am at the UA Denver Pavilions.

Christopher Lloyd stars as Abner, an embittered old mariner and widower living a solitary life. Withdrawn from his family and the tight-knit community of his small marine town, he is a grumpy and unsociable man who seems to live in the past - only finding comfort in the countless hours spent building a sailboat in his yard. When neglected young orphan Rick (Tekola Cornetet) wanders onto Abner's property hiding from local bullies, the two find common ground and form an unlikely bond which changes their lives in unexpected ways.

Written and directed by Arnold Grossman, a published novelist and nonfiction author, The Boat Builder is a story "about the building of a dream." Produced by Richard J. Bosner (Fruitvale Station, The Wannabe), the film also stars Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) and David Lascher (Hey Dude, Sabrina the Teenage Witch).

The Boat Builder marks Arnold Grossman's directorial debut on a narrative feature. Starting his journey as an indie filmmaker later in life "is the culmination of lessons learned from my life experiences and a long career in various creative fields," he stated. "With this film, I was interested in exploring the story of two people at opposite ends of life, who find a bond in a shared dream" continued Grossman. "A key element in the film is the unfolding of a character-driven story layer by layer, as the two principal characters gradually grow closer while working together."

"Denver has inspired the project in many ways" said longtime resident, Grossman, "from the genesis of the story, to the casting of young Tekola Cornetet" he continued, "I am honored to share the film with the Denver audiences - here where it was born and where it came to life."
