"DADDY" to have its World Premiere 
at the Montreal World Film Festival
Screenings August 30 @ 4:10pm and August 31 @ 9pm

DADDY tells the provocative and insightful story of a successful 40-­‐something gay man trying to reconcile his life choices with the newly available possibilities of marriage and family. Lead actor Gerald McCullouch (“CSI,” the BearCity franchise) makes his feature directorial debut from a script by costar Dan Via, who adapts and expands his acclaimed stage play of the same name.

The accomplished cast also includes Jaime Cepero (NBC’s “Smash”), Tamlyn Tomita (The Joy Luck Club, The Day After Tomorrow, “How to Get Away with Murder”), Tony Award winner John Rubinstein, Mackenzie Astin (“Mad Men,” “Murder in the First”), Richard Riehle (Office Space, Bridesmaids) and Jay Jackson (“Parks and Recreation,” “Scandal”).

Synopsis of DADDY:
Star columnist Colin McCormack (Gerald McCullouch) thinks he has it all — a great job, a steady stream of hot younger guys, and a best friend, Stew (Dan Via), whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern named Tee (Jaime Cepero) sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering truth that may cost Colin everything — and everyone — he holds dear.
By turns funny and heartbreaking, DADDY explores the universal need for love and connection, and the evolving understanding of "family" in today's rapidly changing world.
