Manhattanites Take Over Tribeca Cinemas
Last night, I attended a cast screening of the independent film Manhattanites at Tribeca Cinemas. Director Gregori J. Martin , who also stars in the film, and screenwriter Roger Newcomb introduced the film about the lives of a group of assorted characters in New York City over a period of several months. Stars of the long-running daytime television serial dramas One Life to Live and All My Children make up much of the film's ensemble cast including Ilene Kristen, Forbes March, Aiden Turner, David Fumero and Jill Larson. The film is co-directed by All My Children's Darnell Williams, who was also in attendance. Martin, who jets off to L.A. soon, said he wanted the cast to see the film before his departure. "Without you, this could not have happened," he said. Executive Producer Lyle Kamenir told me that once post-production is completed, the team will begin submitting the film to festivals and shopping it around to distributors.
