The Sweet Remains: Film Screening “The Independents”

February 28, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
Beard Auditorium, Stouffer Hall

This event is over.

The Independents is a musical comedy/drama about three solo artists who collide at the same crossroads and discover harmony. Thus is born “RGB” (at least until they come up with a better band name), and what follows is their roller-coaster-ride journey across America for a one last shot at musical glory. Starring real-life bandmates Rich Price, Greg Naughton, and Brian Chartrand of the Sweet Remains (with more than 30 million Spotify plays), and inspired by their real-life experiences together as a band.

The Independents debuted at the 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where the Hollywood Reporter hailed it “An extremely engaging film... An unconventional and sharply written script which subverts all the cliches of the star-is-born story.” It then won the jury prize for Best Feature Film 2018 at the Omaha Film Festival—and has gone on to win audiences and plaudits at great festivals all around the United States, including Deadcenter Film Fest, Dallas International Film Fest, Virginia Film Fest, Naples International Film Fest, and the Mill Valley Film Festival.
