Francis Leik

Actor Francis Leik stars in writer-director Greg Pursino’s sci-fi-thriller short, ‘The Projectionist.’

Actor Francis Leik‘s title character in the new sci-fi short, ‘The Projectionist,’ is longing to experience the real magic of movies firsthand. In honor of the thriller screening tonight during the first block of the newly launched New York Long Island Film Festival (NYLIFF) at the Seaford Cinemas 8, the performer is sharing an acting reel that features his five diverse roles in the movie.

Greg Pursino wrote, directed and starred in ‘The Projectionist.’ In addition to Pursino and Leik, who’s nominated for an Audience Choice Actors Award at NYLIFF for his work, the short also stars Pursino, Matt O’ Connor, Marie Breckles and Nick Dubanos.

‘The Projectionist’ follows Leik’s title character, Jerry Dean, who knows ‘He could have been somebody,’ after 25 years of frustration watching famous actors come and go on the big screen. Little does he know he’s about to experience the real magic of movies firsthand.

Tonight’s opening night block of movies at the first edition of the NYLIFF is scheduled to run between 7:00–9:30pm EST. Tickets for the festival, which runs until this Saturday, November 9, can be purchased here, and range from $8-$30. The Seaford Cinemas is located at 3951 Merrick Rd, Seaford, NY, 11783.
