Cold Weather Premiere - Melwood Screening Room - Keegan DeWitt Film Score

Cold Weather will be premiering at the Melwood Screening Room in Pittsburgh Friday 2/18. The breakout hit of 2010's SxSW film festival was this feature from Aaron Katz, a recent Pittsburgh resident. In this riff on a classic detective story, Doug -- a college dropout and huge Sherlock Holmes fan -- moves to Portland to live with his sister. When his ex-girlfriend suddenly goes missing, Doug turns amateur sleuth and takes up the case himself. Slyly funny and unexpectedly tense, this charming mystery confirms Katz as one of American cinema's hottest young indie filmmakers.

Keegan DeWitt created the score of the film which is now available for free download here. From the press release:

Singer/songwriter/composer Keegan DeWitt's film score for recent theatrical release Cold Weather is now available as a free download via his website. After recently premiering on Cinema Blend, DeWitt's two-disc Cold Weather score - one disc of the official score and another of demos.

Recently chosen as a 'Critic's Pick' by The New York Times and praised by The Los Angeles Times ("DeWitt's richly textured original score"), the DeWitt-scored Cold Weather saw its New York premiere last weekend and will premiere in Los Angeles at the Sunset 5 tonight (February 11th). The film will continue to make its debut in multiple cities across the country over the next month (a full schedule is below), including on March 4th in the Portland, OR-raised DeWitt's current hometown of Nashville, where he will perform "End Credits" live. Cold Weather is also now available nationwide via On Demand.

Filmmaker Aaron Katz and producer Brendan McFadden will be on hand Friday evening to present and answer questions about.
