A bit about the Cheerful Subversive:
Dan Mirvish is a director, screenwriter, producer and author. His newest award-winning film BERNARD AND HUEY was written by Oscar/Pulitzer winner Jules Feiffer, and stars Oscar-winner Jim Rash and David Koechner. It’s already screened in 16 festivals this fall, from Germany to Brazil to Guam. Dan’s previous feature, BETWEEN US, starring Julia Stiles and Taye Diggs, played in 23 festivals in 7 countries, sold to 144 countries, and screened in the US theatrically, and on Showtime, Starz, Netflix and all digital outlets. Dan was mentored by Robert Altman on his first film, OMAHA (THE MOVIE), which led him to co-founding the upstart Slamdance Film Festival that runs concurrent with Sundance. Dan’s film OPEN HOUSE led the Academy Awards to controversially rewrite their rules on the Best Original Musical category. Mirvish wrote the critically-acclaimed book “The Cheerful Subversive's Guide to Independent Filmmaking” for Focal Press/Routledge, and he co-wrote the best-selling novel “I Am Martin Eisenstadt” (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) based on the fake McCain advisor who took credit for Sarah Palin not knowing Africa was a continent.
