Lascelles’ film to screen in Columbia Basin festival

Former North Kitsap resident Debora Lascelles is the director of the film “Upon Release,” which has been named an official selection to the Columbia Basin International Film Festival Aug. 15 to 19 in Vancouver, Wash.

Lascelles, who began her film studies at Olympic College before earning a scholarship for the prestigious cinematic arts program at the University of Southern California, was selected to direct the school-financed short film last year as a senior project.

The announcement isn’t just good news for Lascelles. One of the film’s stars, Kelly Huddleston, is a former Central Kitsap resident now working as an actress and comedian in Los Angeles.
