LOS ANGELES — September 25, 2017 — Robert Altman’s seminal satire of Hollywood, “The Player,” will celebrate its 25th anniversary as the Closing Night program of the 2017 DTLA Film Festival on Sat., Sept 30 at 6:00 pm.

Cast members Peter Gallagher (“American Beauty”, “The O.C.”) and Cynthia Stevenson (“Happiness,” “Case 39”) as well as production designer Stephen Altman (“Ray,” “Gosford Park”) and producer Cary Brokaw (“Closer,” “Angels In America”) are confirmed to attend the event and participate in the post-screening Q&A.

Following the screening, festivities will continue with the Closing Night Gala at the Jason Vass Contemporary Art Gallery in DTLA’s Arts District. The gallery is participating in Pacific Standard Time— a multi-faceted art exhibition throughout Southern California focused on Latino and Latin American — and the gallery’s current exhibition of noted Mexican artist Emiliano Gironella Parra will be on view.

“The Player,” which has an enviable 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, won 23 major film awards, including a Golden Globe for Best Screenplay (by Michael Tolkin) and was nominated for three Oscars. New York Times film critic Vincent Canby wrote, “Mr. Altman has made the kind of ‘in’ Hollywood film that will be comprehensible to just about anybody who goes to movies or who simply reads about them.”
