Door Eleven Productions Announces Mississippi Premiere of Latest Film, “Nicky”

Boston-based Production Company brings short dramatic thriller, “Nicky” to The Magnolia Film Festival on Thursday, February 20 at Hollywood Premier Cinemas in Starkville

BOSTON, Mass. – February 6, 2014  Door Eleven Productions, one of Boston’s leading independent film and video production companies, has just announced its latest dramatic thriller, “Nicky,” is an Official Selection of The Magnolia Independent Film Festival and will make its Mississippi Premiere on Thursday, February 20 at Hollywood Premier Cinemas in Starkville. The 32-miniute short film will open The Magnolia Independent Film Festival and marks the company’s second acceptance into Mississippi’s longest running film fest with their sophomore feature, “The Darkness Within,” having screened in competition for “Best Feature Film” in 2010.

“Nicky” tells the visceral tale of an emotionally damaged man seeking retribution for his young brother’s kidnapping and the toll his obsession takes on him and those around him.  The film has received critical acclaim, including a stellar 5-star review from FilmThreat’s Amy R. Handler and has most recently won the prestigious Silver Screen Award from The Nevada International Film Festival.

Expected to attend are the film’s director & co-writer, Dom Portalla, actor/producer and co-writer, Ken Flott, as well as musical composer of the film’s score, Danielle Samson, who will all be participating in the post-screening question and answer session. “Magnolia has an excellent reputation for screening outstanding films and being a ‘filmmaker friendly’ festival,” says Portalla. “I’m honored and excited for “Nicky’s” inclusion in this year’s program and to be invited to return to what I consider one of my favorite film festivals.”

WHAT: Mississippi Premiere of Door Eleven Production’s dramatic thriller, “Nicky.” Cost of admission: $10. Q&A Session with cast and crew to follow screening.
