Made-in-Seattle film “True Adolescents” to premiere at SXSW

So far it’s been a good year for the local film industry. Lynn Shelton’s “Humpday” and David Russo’s “The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle” were both well-received at Sundance last month, with “Humpday” picking up a sweet domestic distribution deal (watch for it in theaters in August). Now comes word that “True Adolescents,” a comedy about an aging Seattle rocker, will have its world premiere at the South by Southwest festival’s opening weekend in mid-March. Writer/director Craig Johnson is a Seattle native who grew up in Bellingham and attended the U.W., and many of the film’s cast and crew are local. (One notable non-native in the cast: the great Melissa Leo, currently an Oscar nominee for “Frozen River.) “True Adolescents,” shot in various Seattle locations in 2007, will make the film-festival rounds this spring and summer following its premiere; keep an eye out.
