Acclaimed Teen Comedy To Hit Shelves On July 15

Film To Screen at the Famed Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on June 18

LOS ANGELES (June 18, 2008) - School may be out for the summer but a new DVD will have students heading back to class for the summer's hottest comedy! The Curiosity of Chance, a John Hughes-styled '80s comedy about an openly gay teen in high school hell, is set to hit DVD shelves this July. Looking to capitalize on the demand generated through the film festival circuit over the last year, TLA Releasing, a major distributor of gay and lesbian films, is releasing The Curiosity of Chance on DVD in North America on July 15.

In anticipation of the DVD release, there will be a special advance festival screening this month at the famed Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian in Hollywood, California. This one-time event will take place Wednesday, June 18 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Outfest Wednesdays Series presented by the American Cinematheque. Following the screening, moviegoers will have the opportunity to meet filmmakers and select cast members at a reception hosted by Absolut.

The high school comedy gets a fresh twist in this touching, coming-of-age tale set in the 80's. New wave angst and gender-bending fashion were all the rage, but the new kid at school, Chance Marquis (Tad Hilgenbrinck of American Pie Presents: Band Camp and Lost Boys: The Tribe) is trying to find new ways to stand out. Chock-full of the comic conventions of the high school genre - the idiot faculty, the good-hearted but delusional parents, the fairy tale reversal of popularity - The Curiosity of Chance is a frothy bit of nostalgic filmmaking. The film also stars Brett Chukerman (Fall of Hyperion) and Chris Mulkey (North Country, Mysterious Skin).

The Curiosity of Chance has been a hit at film festivals around the world. Its accolades include "Best-of-the-Fest" at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, "Best Narrative Feature" at the Reeling Chicago LGBT International Film Festival, "Best New Director" for writer/director Russell P. Marleau at the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival and Honorable Mention for "Best Music in a Feature Film" at the Nashville Film Festival.

Tickets for The Curiosity of Chance screening are available at www.fandango.com, at the Egyptian box office and by phone, (323) 466-FILM. For more information, visit www.outfest.org/outfest/ofwed200803.html
