Austinite Holdridge comes home with IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS!

Austin expatriot and indiemaker Alex Holdridge's latest film, IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS is a semi-autobiographical comic ride though love, sex, and modern romance in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve. The feature is getting a lot of very strong attention from viewers and press from around the world, and we're excited to join with AFS in bringing it (and its director) here for a special screening at Alamo South Lamar!

Wilson (Scoot McNairy), a 29 year old guy who has just had the worst year of his life, is new to Los Angeles, has no date, no concrete plans and every intention of locking the doors and forgetting the last year ever happened. That is until his best friend, Jacob (Brian McGuire), browbeats him into posting a personal ad on Craig's List. Vivian (Sara Simmonds) answers the ad...

What follows is a one-night whirlwind romance that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. A love letter to film, romance and Los Angeles (Holdridge's adopted home), the film features stunning Black-and-White cinematography that does for LA what Woody Allen's MANHATTAN does for New York.

Holdridge's last film, SEXLESS, is the only movie to have won both the Jury and Audience Award for best feature film at SXSW. And this new film has once again thrust him back into the festival spotlight, garnering praise as the 'Best American Independent film of the Year' at almost every stop.

See the AFS site to get tickets for this very special event.
