Will Lodi be host to an international film festival?
Using construction paper and paint, Barry Ware, a writer and actor, renovated a cave movie set in a warehouse on Pine Street that was used recently to film “Operation M.I.S.T.” The set will be used to film a new movie trilogy.
- ‘Bad Faith’ to be first movie at Film on the Square
“Bad Faith,” starring Lodi’s Scott Duns, will make its Lodi
debut on Oct. 15 at Film on the Square. The movie is about the
murder of the main character’s wife in Woodbridge and his issues
about whether “an eye for an eye” is the best policy — killing or
injuring the perpetrator in a way identical to what that person did
it to someone else.
The movie was filmed at such locations at Rosa’s Market and
Randy Thomas’ law office in Woodbridge, a formerly used courtroom
in Lodi, a house in north Stockton, a bridge off Eight Mile Road
west of Interstate 5 and a warehouse in Sacramento.
The movie was first shown May 28 at the Crest Theater in
downtown Sacramento and more recently at film festivals in Pasadena
and Temecula. The film won the “best drama feature” award in
Duns wrote and directed the movie in addition to having one of
the starring roles. Other key cast members include Jason Feilzer,
of Stockton, and Teri Flores, who recently moved to Southern
California from the Sacramento area.

Picture this: Lodi having its own international film festival,
with 200 to 300 movies being shown during a three-day period next
August at Hutchins Street Square. There could be six or seven films
shown at a time in different rooms at Hutchins, said Lodi resident
Barry Ware, one of three business partners in the venture.
Ware said he hopes that the film festival will draw Hollywood
moguls and people from all over the world to watch the films.
