Red-carpet Cinefest screening for 'Cost of a Soul'


Philadelphia Cinefest's big splash will be a red-carpet screening on April 10 of the Philly-shot drama Cost of a Soul, which stars Chris Kerson and Will Blagrove as Iraqi war veterans coming home to the mean streets.

It's the first project from screenwriter/director Sean Kirkpatrick, a Norristown native, who filmed on Philly's mean streets over 19 days in April 2009.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. screening at the Ritz East are on sale now. It will be shown in 35mm.

Producer Edward J. Eberwine III says Kerson and possibly Blagrove will walk the carpet, as will co-stars Mark Borkowski and Judy Jerome.

The production, which cost less than $200,000, has gotten amazing bang for the buck. It recently won the "I Am Rogue/Big Break" movie contest, and will play 50 AMC theaters nationwide April 15.
