Oceanside CA— Don’t miss the Awards Ceremony of the 2016 Oceanside International Film Festival August 14th at Star Theatre, 402 North Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054. It includes presentation of two special awards: OIFF Lifetime Achievement Award for Golden Globe and Academy Award nominee Kathleen Quinlan for her contribution in film and television industry, and OIFF Lifetime Achievement Award for Roland “Rolly” Crump for his historic contribution to the heart of the entertainment industry with Walt Disney Company (creator of three of Disneyland’s most beloved attractions It’s a Small World, the Haunted Mansion and the Enchanted Tiki Room, and one of animators of “Peter Pan,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “101 Dalmatians.”) Quinlan will also be in attendance of OIFF at screening of her latest full length feature film “ADDicted” August 13th at Sunshine Brooks Theatre.
Kathleen Quinlan – receiving Lifetime Achievement Award from Oceanside International Film Festival for her contribution in film and television industry – is an American film and television actress. She earned a Best Actress Golden Globe nomination for the 1977 film I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, and a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination for her role in the 1995 film Apollo 13. Her other film appearances include Airport ’77 (1977), The Promise (1979), The Runner Stumbles (1979), Sunday Lovers (1980), Sunset (1988), Clara’s Heart (1988), The Doors (1991), Breakdown in (1997), and Breach (2007). Quinlan made her film debut in George Lucas’ 1973 nostalgic look at the early sixties, American Graffiti, at the age of 19. As a young actress, she guest-starred in several 1970s television series including Police Woman, Ironside, Emergency!, Kojak and The Waltons. She has appeared in over 50 films, but is perhaps best known for her roles as Deborah, a schizophrenic, in the film version of I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama, and for a Golden Globe and Oscar nominated turn in the Best Supporting Actress category as an astronaut’s wife, Marilyn Lovell, in the 1995 true story Apollo 13 opposite Tom Hanks. Quinlan also made a mark as Jim Morrison’s Celtic Pagan lover Patricia Kennealy in Oliver Stone’s The Doors, and won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award as Favorite Supporting Actress-Suspense, for Breakdown (1997) with Kurt Russell. Her recent work includes the TV series House, the 2006 remake of the horror classic The Hills Have Eyes, the wife of a government traitor in the 2007 film Breach, the mother of the brothers in the Fox drama Prison Break, and a Senator in a 2011 episode ‘Alliances’ of the sci-fi series Stargate Universe.
Roland “Rolly” Crump – receiving Lifetime Achievement Award from Oceanside International Film Festival for his historic contribution to the heart of the entertainment industry with Walt Disney Company – is an American animator and designer noted particularly for his work as a Disney Imagineer. Rolly was hired by Walt Disney who went on to help create three of Disneyland’s most beloved attractions: It’s a Small World, the Haunted Mansion and the Enchanted Tiki Room. He was also an in-betweener animator on “Peter Pan,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “101 Dalmatians.” Rolly began his career at Walt Disney Studio as an “In-Betweener” in Animation at the age of twenty-two. The Studio offered a wealth of opportunity to the young artist. His fascination with propellers led to a display in the Studio Library. Walt was intrigued by the colorful, spinning objects and the artist who developed them. He moved Rolly out of Animation and into what was then WED (the original Imagineering company) and he became one of the first Disney Imagineers. The little propellers became the inspiration for the Tower of the Four Winds which he designed for ‘It’s a Small World’ attraction at the 1964 World’s Fair. Rolly’s Disney career spanned more that 40 years with a few interruptions. During those interruptions he created his own companies and worked on projects around the world. In 2004 Rolly was honored with the Walt Disney Legends Award – a prestigious award that acknowledges those outstanding individuals who helped create the Magic of Disney. Rolly Crump “retired” from The Walt Disney Company in 1996, but don’t believe it. He’s still breathing life into original ideas at his home in Fallbrook, CA.

Synopsis of ADDicted:
Classes, football, LSATs and a high-strung ex-girlfriend. Like most college kids, Drew Dawson leads a hectic life. After getting suspended from football for academic violations, his world spirals even more out of control. Already taking Adderall for ADD, his dependency alarmingly heightens as he looks for any answer to please his politico mother and to get reinstated on the team. However, after befriending the teacher who failed him, Drew begins to question whose life he’s really living and at what costs.
About writer, director, producer of ADDicted:
After finishing the script and raising the initial $50,000 on Kickstarter, Dan Jenski secured the rest of the funding through a private investor, filmed “ADDicted” on the campus of his alma mater and left Columbia, MO not only having just shot his first feature but also with a degree in-hand: Eight years later, he was finally able to take the last course he needed to graduate. Jenski currently resides in Los Angeles. This is what he wrote about his college years and the film: “One couldn’t help but notice the ‘Adderall boom’ that infiltrated campuses across the country. Pulling three-day cram sessions with no sleep became the norm. I had friends who faked ADD symptoms so they could get their own bottles. I saw pills being sold for up to $20 a pop. I also knew a few people who absolutely lost it when they ran out of pills or didn’t have access to them. This lifestyle didn’t end after graduation; it’s followed us into our 30s and 40s. Even adult diagnoses of ADD have sky-rocketed to an all-time high in recent years. Herein lies the problem: While it’s easy to blame doctors for being over-zealous when it comes to doling out pills, we as a society are addicted to a lifestyle that encourages it. You can sleep when you’re dead. Eating? No time for that. If we take a break, it allows a competitor to make gains. And let’s not forget the athletes using pills for performance enhancements. For me, making ADDicted was all about about opening the eyes of a society more tunnel-visioned and pill-dependent than ever before.”
