Filmmaker Anna Martemucci To Present In Thomas Building

Anna Martemucci — actress, filmmaker, and Penn Stater — will present “The Director’s Chair with Anna Martemucci,” a discussion on her newest film “Hollidaysburg,” tonight in 101 Thomas.

Martemucci, who grew up in State College and went to Penn State from 2000 to 2002, rose to fame on the STARZ reality show “The Chair.” The filmmaking competition series followed Martemucci as she directed her first feature-length film using the same script and budget as her competitor, Youtube star Shane Dawson.

Though Matremucci didn’t win the show, she has continued to act and produce films. “Hollidaysburg” is a coming-of-age story about five college freshmen in central Pennsylvania.

“I knew I wanted to tell a story that was in central Pennsylvania and was small town central Pennsylvania,” said Martemucci in a press release. “That aspect that you know everybody in your high school, that townie aspect, is what I really wanted to capture. ‘Hollidaysburg’ just lent itself perfectly to all of my needs.”

The presentation is hosted by Penn State’s Student Film Association and begins at 8 p.m. It is a ticketless event and free for students. Following the discussion, there will be a question-and-answer session about the film.

Check out the trailer for “Hollidaysburg” below:
