SEATTLE FILMMAKERS PREMIERE “TREATMENT” AT TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL

Tribeca Film Festival
Filmed in LA, but shot with distinct Seattle style and backed by Humpday production team Joshua Leonard, Jennifer Maas and Steven Schardt, Treatment directed by Sean Nelson and Steven Schardt, will premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Selected out of 5,624 other entries in a record year for submissions, the film will be in the international independent “Viewpoints” category. Viewpoints is new to Tribeca and offers 11 narrative features and nine documentaries as a snapshot of international independent cinema. These 20 films will immerse audiences in distinctive perspectives, from documentaries grounded in the intimate stories of real-life characters to narratives that stretch the stylistic potential of the medium. Schardt recently produced the MTV webseries $5 Cover: Seattle, Joshua Leonard who plays the main character Leonard was a comedic sensation in Lynn Shelton’s Humpday. The plot of Treatment revolves around Leornard who convinces his best friend Nelson to bankroll his stint at a glitzy L.A. rehab clinic so he can pitch a movie idea to mega-star Gregg D, his blind ambition begins to consume him. The film is a witty, ridiculous, and sincere tale of co-dependent friendship on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Treatment will have its world premiere at the festival; check the link above for more info on the Seattle infused film and all the other Tribeca selections.
