U.S. Premiere Event of “The Answer” (which was filmed in the Valley)

November 25, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

This Thanksgiving season, honor the men in your life by seeing a locally-made, award-winning film about them…and the friendships they have…
6:30pm: Red Carpet / Meet the Cast & Crew
7:30pm: Film

PLEASE JOIN OUR CAST AND CREW for the U.S. Premiere of “The Answer”, a film about friendship. Northampton was home base for the production, so local writer/director Wade Wofford wanted its U.S. Premiere to be in the community that made it possible. From Noho-based fundraising, to shooting on location in the area, the Pioneer Valley played a pivotal role to the making of the film. Winner of the Rising Star Award at Canada International Film Festival, this red-carpet event marks the first time the film will be shown on U.S. soil.

The Story:
Gavin loses his wife to a sudden car accident. He falls apart, and finds his teaching career in jeopardy. His younger brother Harry organizes five of Gavin’s closest friends from different eras of his life – and the ensemble sets off to hike a 60-mile leg of the Appalachian Trail. Personalities clash. These men, after all, have only one thing in common: their friendship to Gavin. As they get deeper into the forest, each man finds his own inner demons rising to the surface.


Our cast and crew will be gussied up, but feel free to dress casually. Bring your mother, your cousins, your friends. This is a film filled with humanity to conclude your giving of thanks with art, humor and humanity.
