The Sedona International Film Festival presents the Northern Arizona premiere of the thrilling comedy “I Love My Dad” showing Aug. 5-11 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

Inspired by writer, director and star James Morosini’s true life experience, “I Love My Dad” follows Chuck (Patton Oswalt), a hopelessly estranged father who desperately wants to reconnect with his troubled son, Franklin (Morosini).

Blocked on social media and concerned for his son’s life, Chuck impersonates a waitress online and starts checking in with Franklin. But things begin to spiral when Franklin falls for this imaginary girl (Claudia Sulewski) and wants nothing more than to meet her in person, as Chuck has inadvertently catfished his own son.

A thrilling comedy with an unexpected twist, “I Love My Dad” also stars Rachel Dratch, Lil Rel Howery, Amy Landecker and Ricky Velez.

Show times will be 7 p.m. on Friday, Sunday and Monday, Aug. 5, 7 and 8; and 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 9, 10 and 11.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: SedonaFilmFestival.org.
