Chuck Palahniuk's Story, 'ROMANCE,' To Have Its World Film Premiere At The Raindance Film Festival

Chuck Palahniuk's Story, 'ROMANCE,' To Have Its World Film Premiere At The Raindance Film Festival

If you saw Chuck on tour recently, then you heard him read from one of his best short stories to date... 'Romance.'  'Romance' is a easily one of my favorite stories Chuck has ever written.  I won't spoil the surprise of the story, but let's just say it's a true romantic comedy, in only the most twisted and fucked up way Chuck could tell it.

Last year, Andy Mingo, a filmmaker out of the Pacific Northwest who also happens to be Lidia Yuknavitch's husband, wrote and directed an adaptation of this wonderful story, and it's now set to have its world premiere in London at the 2012 Raindance Film Festival on October 2nd. If you plan on attending, not only will you see the film, but you'll get to see Chuck do a Q&A / reading and possibly qualify to be one of a dozen people who attend an intimate dinner with Chuck at a prestigious location in Leicester Square.

Based on the story by Chuck Palahniuk that appeared in the 2011 issue of Playboy magazine, 'Romance' will do its world premiere at the 2012 Raindance Film Festival in London on October 2nd. This screening will be followed by a Q&A session and a reading of his choice by Chuck Palahniuk. The event will also be attended by the film’s director, Andy Mingo.

After the screening/reading join Chuck in an intimate dinner with a dozen other people at a prestigious location in Leicester Square.

Tickets to the dinner are available now on a silent auction basis through the IFT. The proceeds will be used to fund its work in bringing filmmaking skills to disadvantaged people.
