October 5, 2019 – The 42nd Mill Valley Film Festival hosted the West Coast premiere of Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse and star Robert Pattinson was there to accept the Mill Valley Spotlight Award.
Before that, Pattinson hit the red carpet where I asked him about the most daunting elements of making this treacherously funny and wild film and what he looks for when choosing projects.
Videography and editing by John David Levy.
JUST ADDED: Robert Pattinson receiving his Mill Valley Film Festival Spotlight Award from MVFF Founder/Executive Director/Festival Director Mark Fishkin.
After the film, Variety’s Jenelle Riley moderated a Q&A with Pattinson where he discussed working with Robert Eggers and the legendary Willem Dafoe on The Lighthouse, what he defines as a comedy and the news that seagull in the film was trained, one of only two in the world. Watch it below.
After the Q&A Pattinson partied with Booksmart director Olivia Wilde, the Oscar-nominated screenwriters of Dolemite Is My Name, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, Dolemite breakthrough star Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Harriet director Kasi Lemmons.
