The 22nd Stony Brook Film Festival will be showing Ethel and Ernest in July. The festival is held at Stony Brook University, the State University of New York. The producer of Ethel and Ernest, Camilla Deakin from Lupus Films, will be introducing the film at the festival.

Ethel and Ernest will be one of 36 films that were chosen out of over 2,000 entries for this year’s festival. The Stony Brook Film Festival is a sought-after venue for filmmakers, sales agents, and distributors from around the world, who enjoy having their films shown on one of the region’s largest screens to audiences of up to 1,000 viewers.

“The festival’s recent turn toward international films will continue with screenings of “The King’s Choice,” a Norwegian drama set during the Nazi occupation of Oslo; the Finnish coming-of-age story “Little Wing,” about a 12-year-old girl searching for the father she has never met; and “Ethel & Ernest,” a British animated film based on Raymond Briggs’ graphic novel about his parents’ relationship from the 1920s through the 1970s.”Rafer Guzman, Newsday.
