David Spade’s starring role in "Father of the Year" as a dad in Deerfield, N.H., brings him back to the Granite State tomorrow for an appearance at the New Hampshire Film Festival.
On Saturday, Oct. 13, Spade will participate in a Q&A session following the screening of the film at 3:30 p.m. at 3S Artspace, 319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth.
"Father of the Year" tells the story of what happens when a drunken debate between two college graduates about whose father would win in a fight is taken seriously by their dads. Jobs are lots, relationships ruined and best friends come of age as they come to grips with the identity of their fathers.
New Hampshire native Tyler Spindel is the film's director and producer. He also co-wrote the screenplay with Brandon Cournoyer.
In addition to Spade, the film stars Nat Faxon, Joey Bragg, Matt Shively, Bridgit Mendler and Jackie Sandler.
Weekend and day festival passes are available for purchase at www.nhfilmfestival.com or at the film festival's headquarters at Discover Portsmouth Center, 10 Middle St., Portsmouth. Seating at the film will be available according to the level of entry pass with VIP Pass holders first, followed by Weekend Pass holders and then Day Pass holders. The festival suggests those interested in seeing any of the festival's film screenings arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled screening time of the film.
Spade will perform later Saturday evening in a sold-out show at the Hampton Beach Casino.
