PAUL RUDD, MARK STRONG, SIENNA MILLER AND JEFF DANIELS 
STAR IN THE GRIPPING TRUE STORY

 

THE CATCHER WAS A SPY

 

Stranger-Than-Fiction Espionage Thriller Arrives on DVD & Digital 

 

Paul Rudd stars as Moe Berg in the incredible true story of how a professional baseball player became a World War II spy.  A Jewish, Princeton-educated, multilingual catcher for the Boston Red Sox with a closely-guarded private life, the enigmatic Berg was already a man of mystery when, in 1944, the U.S. government's wartime intelligence agency enlisted his services. His mission: go behind enemy lines in Europe to assassinate the Nazi's chief nuclear scientist before the Germans develop an atomic bomb. Trading in his catcher's mitt for a trench coat, Berg must rely on his formidable, steel-trap intellect in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse—with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Mark Strong, Sienna Miller, Jeff Daniels, Guy Pearce and Paul Giamatti costar in this remarkable slice of forgotten history.

 

THE CATCHER WAS A SPY is rated R for some sexuality, violence and language. The film will be available on DVD with deleted scenes or on Digital beginning October 2, 2018.

The festival is delighted to announce their host for 2018, comedian Al Pitcher who began his standup career in 1999, the same year he reached the ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ final and many other high profile competitions in the UK. Performing all around the world this well loved comedian has picked up numerous awards including Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, Best Male Competition, the Swedish Standup Award, the People’s Choice Award and more.

NIFF's programmers focus on finding diverse independent films with strong characters and storylines and encourage all filmmakers, regardless of ethnicity or religion. This exciting festival was founded by Johan Matton and Linnea Larsdotter.

 

“This way of introducing non-represented films as a festival to distribution companies is our way to help independent filmmakers obtain distribution for their films without having to pay for sales agent fees. As a festival, we have leverage to help the filmmakers though the distribution companies know we as a festival have watched hundreds of films and selectively introduces only, maybe, only 2-3 titles to the distribution company that we believe hold very high quality” – Johan Matton, Founder of Nordic International Film Festival.

 

The full line up will be announced on September 20th.
