Cinequest 2017 – Recently Bay Area HQ caught up with several actors, filmmakers, and producers on the Cinequest red carpets for some fun interviews. We talked to a CEO, the director of the award-winning “Jeremy” music video by Pearl Jam, the man who played Casey Affleck’s dad in Manchester By the Sea, a Mad Men star, an American Idol semi-finalist, and many more notable artists. There’s still time to catch some remaining premieres, showings, and special events at Cinequest (in both Redwood City and San Jose). And don’t forget Saturday’s big day, with a Maverick award presentations to Portlandia and SNL star Fred Armisen, and Best in Show and Glee alum Jane Lynch.
