Accepted into the appropriately designated “Shorts Program 2 – “Transitions,” the festival will host three screenings of “Towed,” in competition, with the world premiere screening event on Thursday, March 3, 2016 at 9:30 p.m. at Camera 12 Cinema, San Jose, CA.
Celesta DeAstis is honored to be part of “Towed.” A driven, energetic, and experienced young actress of Italian descent, Celesta’s resume boasts several commercials and documentaries for HBO, Nintendo, UE Boom, and Gazelle – amongst others. Her first movie, “Banana Leaves,” made its debut at the Pan African Film Festival of Los Angeles in 2009 – and went on to play in movie theaters throughout Africa. Celesta’s TV credits include Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” and “A.N.T. Farm,” and ABC Family’s “Melissa and Joey,” among others. Celesta has also done several modeling and print jobs including an appearance in the Sprite Christmas 2009 campaign.
In addition to “Towed,” Celesta is also the lead in the newest Asylum production movie, “Hacked,” premiering later this year. Celesta has trained with some of the industry’s best, including The Second City in Chicago and L.A. acting coach, John D’Aquino.
