Juliet Landau (A PLACE AMONG THE DEAD) Unable to Attend Waco’s Deep in the Heart FF Due to Covid Diagnosis

 

The 6th Annual Deep in the Heart Film Festival announced that Juliet Landau, thedirector, co-writer, producer, and star of A Place Among the Dead, and her husband, and the film’s co-writer/producer, Deverill Weekes, are unable to attend the festival in person, due to testing positive for Covid-19.

Landau said, “Deverill and I are so incredibly bummed. We were beyond excited to come to Waco and share our film with what we’ve heard are amazing film fans there. Unfortunately, Covid-19 has hit our home, so taking care of our health and ensuring the safety of everyone else is just what has to be done. As soon as we discovered this, I began working with co-founders Samuel (Thomas) and Louis (Hunter) to do all that I was scheduled to do live, now virtually. We are crestfallen not to be celebrating this visionary festival in person. Dev and I have been really looking forward to attending live but thank goodness we can be a part of sharing A PLACE AMONG THE DEAD, the post-film Q&A and the roundtable panel discussion, etc., online.”

Thomas and Hunter added, “It is sincerely disappointing that we will not be able to have Juliet join us on Friday night. We are big fans of her film and, of course, all of the great stuff she has done prior to that – having her join us was going to be one of our personal highlights as well as the film festival itself. Of course, safety, her and Deverill’s health, and everyone else’s health at the film festival is always our chief priority and it just shows that in addition to being such a beloved talent in the genre community, that she also immediately had everyone else in her mind when letting us know she could not come. Hopefully, Juliet’s schedule will make it possible for her to join us next year and will give her the proper Waco welcome and celebration at that time.”
