Tyro Tilden goes Dogma with debut on ‘Reunion’

Wrote and helmed short 'bigLove'

Leif Tilden will make his feature-helming debut with the Dogma film “Reunion,” which will be produced by O’Hara/Klein and begin production in September.

Ensemble drama stars Billy Wirth (“Sex in the City”), Jennifer Rubin (“The Crush”), recording artist Corey Glover (“Platoon”) and Rainer Judd (“End of Days”).

Written by Ali E. Lightly, “Reunion” brings together a group of friends on the eve of their 20-year high school reunion. All are facing impasses in their lives.

Film will be produced under the Dogma 95 tenets, which requires the use of hand-held cameras and prohibits ambient lighting, sets and made-to-order costumes.

The film will be shot with the CanonXLI digital camera, on loan from Canon USA.

Tilden recently wrote and directed the short film “bigLove,” starring Sam Rockwell, Mary McCormack and Emma Roberts.

“Reunion” will be produced by Kimberly Shane O’Hara and Eric Klein, whose producing credits include the 2000 Toronto Film Festival entry “The Young Unknowns.” O’Hara and Klein also served as associate producers for Unapix Intl.’s feature “Jane Doe” starring Calista Flockhart.

Executive producers of “Reunion” are Umberto Bonetti and Maurizio Ameri, with Joe Anderson, Michael Roban and Larry Stessler.
