QUEST staring Dash Mihok, Lou Diamond Phillips & LaKeith Stanfield- Introducing Greg Kasyan sweeps NVFF17


Greetings Academy of Arts and Sciences,

I served as a “Ringmaster” emcee/host (Napa Valley Opera House; Freemark Abbey) for the 7th Napa Valley Film Festival. As a former foster youth, festival season favorite, “Quest” flexed major heart muscle making mine jolt! Newcomer Greg Kasyan’s performance is hungry- illustrating a young scholar’s complex suburban milieu…co-staring Dash Mihok, Lou Diamond Phillips and LaKeith Stanfield.

Folks at Richard Von Saal’s official NVFF17 award show & red carpet gala after-party were buzzing and speculating on future wins for humble triple threat Santiago Rizzo.

It’s beginning to look a lot like award season!
