Lyons Den Productions, in cooperation with Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, announce a special outdoor film event featuring “There Are No Goodbyes” on July 12 at 9 p.m. on the lawn next to the Reed Union Building on the Behrend campus. The event is free and open to the public and the film’s content is equivalent to a PG-13 rating. Members of the cast and crew will be in attendance for a question-and-answer session following the screening.
“Our productions are based in Erie,” writer and director John C. Lyons said, “so we are honored to be able to show the final cut of our film — four years in the making — at such a great outdoor venue and to a hometown audience.”
“There Are No Goodbyes” is the second feature length film from the award-winning team at Lyons Den Productions who celebrated its world premiere in April at the 40th annual Athens International Film and Video Festival and its Pennsylvania premiere in Pittsburgh on June 16.
“There Are No Goodbyes” is a story about choices and finding purpose in one’s life in the context of the current sociopolitical climate of blue-collar America. In addition to Erie and Pittsburgh, scenes from the independent production were shot overseas in Poland, Czech Republic and Ireland. The production was made possible in part by a Pennsylvania Film Tax Credit award and a successful online crowd-funding campaign.
The film will debut on DVD and digital download in July at ThereAreNoGoodbyes.com.
