2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Geoff Marslett’s The Boardinghouse Reach
It always feels like a W in the win column when Geoff Marslett puts a film out there in the world — life as a filmmaker who includes rotoscope techniques in his tool belt means it’s not about the race, but the marathon mentality. Insert his third feature film with The Boardinghouse Reach, which enlisted David Arquette, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Lily Gladstone, Frank Mosley and filmmaker Alex Cox for some Far West and far out ideas. Production on the film was completed in 2019 and project was part of 2020’s U.S. in Progress at Wroclaw’s American Film Festival. Marslett’s last short The Phantom 52 was selected for the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
