— The new work of a Dayton-area filmmaker and documentarian has been invited to an international film festival.
“Chuck Leavell: The Tree Man” has been invited to the 26th annual Sedona International Film Festival in Sedona, Ariz., said filmmaker, videographer and Centerville-based music producer Allen Farst.
The film is scheduled to show 4 p.m. Feb. 26 in Harkins Theatre 1 and 1:15 p.m. Feb. 28 at 1:15 p.m. in Harkins Theatre 5 at the Sedona festival, Farst said.
“As a showcased film, I will do a Q&A after each screening and take part in panel discussions, festival workshops, special events and more,” said Farst, owner of local commercial video producer Niche Productions. “I’m also doing an hour-long talk on documentary film-making while there.”
For more than three years, Farst has been making a documentary about rock keyboardist Chuck Leavell. That work has taken him to Europe, where he has interviewed Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, Billy Bob Thornton, singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow and many others.
