The Beatles Superfan Will Debut His Film At
Abbey Road On The River In Louisville, Ky. May 27-29
And Gold Coast International In Great Neck, N.Y. June 1-5

Indie pop mastermind Seth Swirsky brings his nostalgic documentary “Beatles Stories” to multiple film festivals this summer. The first, WHAS-11 Abbey Road on the River, will highlight Swirsky’s 75-minute film among other untold Fab Four stories with five screenings starting May 27 at the Belvedere and Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Ky. The five-day music and film festival will also host a Q&A session with Swirsky May 27.

Giving a nod to the incredible Fab Four, the film is also set to screen at the inaugural Gold Coast International Film Festival (GCIFF) in Long Island’s North Shore area. “Beatles Stories” will be screened June 4-5 at Squire Cinemas in Great Neck, N.Y.

The film has already earned acclaim from critics since the film made its World Premiere at the European Independent Film Festival in Paris on April 3. raves “Beatles Stories” is “A must-see film for anyone who loves the Beatles, or for anyone who wished they could have been there in the swinging 60’s, living the life that so few got to experience.”

Renowned film director Cameron Crowe says, “This film is fantastic, so from the heart and so wildly revealing. An epic and timeless masterwork.”

In addition, Swirsky opened the film to a packed audience on April 29 during the 12th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival (NBFF) with a second successful screening on May 2.

To prepare for his documentary, Swirsky traveled from Los Angeles to New York to London to Liverpool to conduct interviews with rock and pop legends, media personalities, recording engineers and former girlfriends. The 55 interviews were shot with his handheld camera he personally operated and an HD camera he placed in the room for potential cutaway shots.

The diverse array of subjects who lent their joyful recollections to “Beatles Stories” is a testament to Swirsky’s passion. Among them are renowned cultural icons such as: Sir Ben Kingsley, Graham Nash, Smokey Robinson, Brian Wilson, Jon Voight, former First Daughter, Luci Baines Johnson, Donovan, Henry Winkler, Ray Manzarek, Art Garfunkel, Peter Noone, Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick, Susanna Hoffs from The Bangles and Joey Molland from Badfinger.
