Syracuse premier of Cornhole: The Movie June 24 at the Palace

staff reports 06/09/10

Syracuse native, SUNY Oswego graduate and Actor/Producer Elaine Mello-Clarke will bring Cornhole: The Movie to Syracuse as a guest of The Syracuse International Film Festival, and will screen the film at the Palace Theater, 2384 James St., Syracuse (Eastwood) at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 24th.

As a freelance Producer/Programmer Elaine has worked for the Artivist Film Festival, which has featured such films as SuperSize Me, Born Into Brothels, and Fast Food Nation. Her work has been seen at the Syracuse International Film Festival, the Los Angeles Film Festival, The New York Film Festival and Sundance.

Clarke/Kent Pictures is the Production Company behind the film and Timothy Clarke is the film’s writer/director/executive producer.

A team of independent filmmakers recently completed filming Cornhole: The Movie, a mock documentary that follows four cornhole teams working their way to a national championship at the fictional Hudy Center in Cincinnati. And it all sounds perfectly plausible: an annual competition that rallies together a wildly diverse cast of characters all intent on the same thing: taking home the coveted Bronze Sack. Each bag they toss brings them closer to personal victory and draws the audience deeper into the wacky world of competitive cornhole. Most of this movie was filmed in the birth town of cornhole, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Tickets for the film and post-film discussion with Elaine are $10 each and $8 for seniors/students. Tickets will be available at the theater doors, which open at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday June 24.
