EXCLUSIVE: The Mammoth Film Festival has added Runt to its 2020 lineup. The indie feature, which will make its world premiere at the fest, was the last film of the late Cameron Boyce. The festival will take place February 27-March 2 in Mammoth Lakes, CA.
Boyce, best known for his role as Carlos in Disney Channel’s Descendants franchise, stars in the film as Cal, a teenage boy who, after a troubling incident transpires, proves to be a young man with a take-no-prisoners attitude. The film was directed by William Coakley and based on a script by him, Christian Van Gregg, and Armand Constantine.
Nicole Elizabeth Berger, Aramis Knight, Brianna Hildebrand, Cyrus Arnold, Jason Patric and Tichina Arnold co-star. Carl Rumbaugh and Gregory Thomas are producers.
Runt will debut on February 29 at 1 PM and will have a second public screening March 2 at 5PM to close out the festival. Victor and Libby Boyce (The Cameron Boyce Foundation) are expected to attend. Boyce sadly passed last year in July due to a seizure as a result of epilepsy.
The 3rd annual Mammoth Film Festival will also include the world premiere of Tony Hawk’s Pretending I’m Superman as well as the Quentin Tarantino documentary QT8: The First Eight. The fest will also feature the world premiere of Juliet Landau and Deverill Weekes’ docuseries The Undead Series starring Gary Oldman, Ron Perlman, Nathan Fillion, Robert Patrick, Joss Whedon and Tim Burton. The six-part anthology spotlights the vampire phenomenon. In addition, Zac Efron’s Off the Grid will also premiere and there will be a 30th anniversary screening of Back to the Future III.
