Mar. 14, LOS ANGELES — Queens of Country, the irreverent Western tale of a lost iPod, line dancing and mistaken identities starring Lizzy Caplan and Ron Livingston, will premiere at the Phoenix Film Festival on Mar. 31.

“Despite strong appeals to premiere the film elsewhere, we always knew that Queens of Country needed to be shown first in the state where the film was conceived and then ultimately filmed.” explained co-Director Ryan Page. “Arizona is quite literally a character in the film.” Queens of Country was shot in Cave Creek, Ariz. and both of the film’s directors, Page and Christopher Pomerenke, are Arizona natives.

Queens of Country will screen three times during the Phoenix Film Festival: Mar. 31 at 5:10 PM, Apr. 3 at 7:20 PM, and Apr. 4 at 9:00 PM. All screenings take place at the Harkins Scottsdale 101 Theatre.

The film has already achieved cult status with a thriving online presence dedicated to the quirky comedy. The Queens of Country cast members have been at the forefront of spreading the word about the unique film with Lizzy Caplan describing the film as “bananas” to Esquire Magazine during her recent barnstorm of the Sundance Film Festival (supporting two forthcoming features: Save The Date and Bachelorette) and Joe Lo Truglio describing the film to Ology as “a really funny, unique movie.” Phoenix Magazine’s February issue profiled the Arizona-shot film and its directors, Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, describing Queens of Country as “seemingly equal parts Raising Arizona and Urban Cowboy with a dash of Rocky Horror.”

Queens of Country will also be shown at the Nashville Film Festival (in competition), Riverside International Film Festival and the Riverrun International Film Festival with additional screenings to be announced soon.

Rounding out the cast and crew of Queens of Country are Maynard James Keenan, the notorious front man for alt-rock outfits Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, as Bobby Angel, Modest Mouse songwriter Isaac Brock is handling the movie’s score and the legendary rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson performs in the film.

A byproduct of the mounting interest in Queens of Country is that demand for Page and Pomerenke’s involvement in projects continues to grow with several exciting projects on the horizon. The duo is working with Feral House Press publisher Adam Parfrey on an upcoming dramatic feature based on one of the more controversial books from the notorious publishing house as well as finishing up a spec script titled The Rogue President. Ryan Page also co-wrote the screenplay and is Executive Producing Lords of Chaos, the upcoming film by Japanese master director Shion Sono, which tells the story of the Norwegian black metal movement.

Producer Chris “Topper” McDaniel is currently in production on his debut film, the documentary Music City U.S.A.

Sales of Queens of Country are being spearheaded by Cassian Elwes.
