9 November 2016

The Napa Valley Film Festival hosts the latest release in the Lexus Short Films series with the premiere screening tomorrow (10 November) of Game, an exciting new work directed by award-winning film-maker Jeannie Donohoe.

The plot of Game follows a student bidding for a place on a high school’s championship-winning basketball team. On court the player demonstrates all the right skills to earn selection, but has a secret which takes the storyline to another level. The cast includes Canadian actor and three-time NBA champion Rick Fox.

Donohoe attended Columbia University’s graduate film programme and has written and directed several short films, including Lambing Season, which won festival awards in Aspen and the Hamptons in 2013/14. She is currently developing her first full-length feature, Flock.

Game is one of four films produced as part of the third season of Lexus Short Films to support up-and-coming film-makers. The Napa Valley Film Festival will also be screening the other three features in the series, Friday Night, MESSiAH and A Nation Holds its Breath.
