'Geezer' to screen at the Calgary International Film Festival

The Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) has announced that they will be screening the film Geezer at the 2016 edition of their festival this Fall.

CIFF is a 12-day showcase of up to 200 multi-genre feature and short films from Canada and other countries. The festival runs September 21st through October 2nd in Calgary, Alberta (Canada). Tickets to individual screenings go on sale September 7th, but early bird packages are available for purchase now. It is not yet known when during the festival the film will screen, but keep an eye on the film's page on CIFF's website.

Geezer is a film starring Billie Joe Armstrong as the lead character, Perry. The film first debuted on April 23rd at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City and has not been screened since. Read a synopsis of the film below.

"Ten years into his band's "indefinite hiatus", Perry (Billie Joe Armstrong) is now a married father of two living a comfortable life in the suburbs. When his family forgets his 40th birthday, the aging punk-rocker-turned-family-man goes a bit off the rails and, in an effort to relive his glory days, rents a suite at a fancy New York hotel and throws himself a rock star birthday bash. Throughout the day Perry encounters crazy former bandmates and an ex-girlfriend who presents an opportunity to revive his stalled career, all while trying to stay on top of his family duties."

The debut screening was followed up by a Green Day performance, which you can find photos and videos of here. It is still not yet known when the film will be released digitally or physically.
