In Conversation with Tim Heidecker & Gregg Turkington
Moderated by GUY MADDIN
Saturday, July 25th @ 4PM CDT
Exclusively on GFF Live Stream
TIM HEIDECKER and GREGG TURKINGTON remotely join Winnipeg filmmaking legend GUY MADDIN for what promises to be an unforgettable event in the history of GFF, and maybe even the history of ever?!? Absolutely no one knows what will go down when you put the creator of My Winnipeg; one of the minds behind Tim & Eric; and the alter ego of notorious anti-comedian Neil Hamburger, in the same virtual room! Will they talk about the lost works of Oscar Michaux? Or the realism of Visconti’s “Ossessione”? Or whether Paul Rudd is as ruggedly handsome in real life as he is on the silver screen? There’s really only one way to find out!! You have to tune in live on Saturday July 25th at 4pm via GFF Live Stream! And get your best questions prepared, because GFF Live Stream features a live chat, allowing the Tim & Gregg megafans in your life to ask questions of these comedy titans in real time!
