Along with 20 Weeks, Blur Circle, and Bomb City, the film is going to be juried by a panel of industry professionals. The Stubbornly Independent award is given in his honor to an independent film or filmmaker who takes risks and isn’t afraid to tell important stories, and does all of this within the ultra-low budget of $500,000 or less.

Chris News Roundup

It’s been a while that we’ve posted any Chris-related news, so here’s the latest and greatest that you may have missed in the last few months:

…..  Fear, Inc., a horror movie that Chris stars in, has been released on iTunes. There’s a trailer here.

…..  Misconduct, a crime thriller Chris is in, has been released on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD.

TeeJay has seen this one, and Chris’s role is very small. If you’re only watching for Chris, then it might not be worth your while.

…..  Night of the Living Deb, a horror comedy Chris is in, has been released on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD.

TeeJay has seen this one (on the big screen at a film festival, even), and it’s funny and definitely worth watching. If you enjoyed Infestation, then Night of the Living Deb will very likely also be right up your alley. Chris’s role isn’t super huge, but he’s in it a fair bit. And he’s hilarious. He does comedy so well.

…..  Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story, another horror movie, is out on VOD.

TeeJay has seen this one, it’s probably the creepiest, most spine-chilling thing she’s watched in years. It builds a very subtle, yet gripping suspense that may make you not want to switch your lights off at night. Chris plays one of the main characters.

…..  Broken Horses, a Texan family drama/thriller with Chris, has been released on DVD and VOD.

TeeJay and Deb have both seen this one, and opinions differ. It’s certainly a more brainy movie that you need to pay attention to in order to grasp its ins and outs. Chris plays one of the leads, so he’s in it a lot, and he does really amazing, emotional work in it.

…..  We dug up a short video interview with Chris from last year, and a new one from this year.

…..  Chris has been or will be shooting new movies that aren’t out yet.

This includes the titles Parker’s Anchor, Chokeslam, and Boneyard Canteen. Hopefully they’ll be released some time next year.

…..  Chris still has his Instagram account and posts photos and videos there every now and then.

…..  Last but not least, we’ve made some updates to the chris-marquette.com gallery and the video section.

“Night of the Living Deb” to be released in September

According to bloody-disgusting.com, the North American rights for the indie Night of the Living Deb, that Chris has a guest role in, have been bought by MPI/Dark Sky Films at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. The movie is set to premiere in the US in September.

The Dark Sky Films Twitter has also confirmed that they will be releasing the movie on VOD/DVD/Blu-ray in 2016.

An update – at last!

New year, new update. We’re really sorry that it’s been so long since we’ve posted anything new to the site, but we hope to be making up for it with this round-up of what’s happened with Chris since, well, last year.

There’s a few new projects he has worked on or is still working on. Released in 2015 were the movies Broken Horses (thriller) and Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story (horror). Broken Horses is now available on DVD, Always Watching on several streaming portals, including iTunes and amazon Prime (funnily enough, also on DVD and Blu-ray in Germany under the title The Operator). His indie Chu and Blossom is available as streaming video on iTunes and amazon Prime.

The indie Night of the Living Deb (horror) has not yet been released but may be screened at some local film festivals. Keep your eyes peeled. Several other projects are, according to IMDb, in the works, including Parker’s Anchor, Boneyard Canteen, Fear, Inc., Chokeslam and Misconduct. Hopefully they’ll be released in 2016.

Other than that, Chris had a very small guest spot in episode 2×01 of the amazon-produced TV show Mozart in the Jungle. We have uploaded screencaps and also the video clip of that scene.

We also hope you’re following Chris’s Twitter and Instagram accounts. He’s been posting there more or less frequently in the last year. Some of it is pretty hilarious or through-provoking.

Here’s to hoping we’ll see more of Chris on our screens in 2016!
