NEW YORK, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday, April 22nd 2017, Rizk Pictures (www.rizkpictures.com) had their first worldwide feature film premiere with their film Literally, Right Before Aaron at the School of Visual Arts Theater, as a part of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. As both Rizk Pictures' and Producer Alexandra Rizk Keane's first independent feature length film, the premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival marked a successful first step for the company in the production industry.
"Tribeca was one of the festivals that Rizk Pictures was aiming for since the beginning of production," said Alexandra. "After all, we are a New York based company! It seemed like the best festival for us to set our sights on for launching the Rizk Pictures name into the production world."
In addition to Literally, Right Before Aaron being Rizk Pictures' first feature film production, it was also Actor Ryan Eggold's first feature film as Writer and Director. Known for his roles in The Blacklist and The Blacklist: Redemption, Ryan's directing proved he's just as talented behind the camera as he is in front of it. Ryan also composed original music for the film.
"Having our very first feature film accepted into Tribeca was extremely rewarding," said Ms. Rizk Keane about the film. "Rizk Pictures worked closely with Ryan (Eggold), putting a great deal of time and heart into this film, and overall, it has been a wonderful experience."
The Premiere was attended by Tribeca Film Festival VIPs and key members of the cast and crew, which included notables such as Justin Long, Ryan Eggold, John Cho, Charlotte McKinney, and Ryan Hansen. The Blacklists' Megan Boone also stopped by to congratulate her TV co-star.
An after party celebrating the film's premiere, co-sponsored by Rizk Pictures and Chloe Wine Collection, was held at Fine & Rare and attended by the film's cast and crew, as well as family and friends. The film's co-star Cobie Smulders, who could not make the premiere, also joined in the after party celebrations.
"I'm confident that my Associate Producer, Sean Rappleyea, would agree with me when I say that Tribeca was just the beginning for Rizk Pictures. The festival opened many doors for our film, but more importantly, it had a lasting impact on our budding company," said Alexandra Rizk Keane.
