July 2017 will be a home coming celebration for Louisville’s two most famous magicians - Lance Burton and Mac King - to whom the IBM-SAM convention will be dedicated.
In recognition of this occasion, Lance Burton will present the Louisville Premiere of his award winning film, Billy Topit Master Magician, as the opening event of the IBM-SAM Combined Convention next July 11. Joined by his fellow Louisville native Mac King, Lance will be on hand for a red carpet showing of the movie at the Kentucky Center’s Whitney Theatre.
Billy Topit Master Magician took the Award for Best Family Film at the 2016 Wild Rose Independent Film Festival. It also won Distinctive Achievement Awards for Production Design, Art Direction, Costumes, and Visual Effects. Lance also won a Distinctive Achievement Award for Acting.
Lance, Mac, and Michael Goudeau, who is the co-screen writer and a featured cast member, will be available for an interview and Q and A session at the film’s conclusion.
The premiere will be free to all registered attendees of the convention and tickets will be sold to the public to raise funds for local charities.
Don’t miss this historic and IBM-SAM exclusive event. This will be the only convention showing of this film in 2017. This red carpet premiere brings a bit of Hollywood glamour to the Louisville Combined Convention with stars, photo ops, and a movie that all magicians will particularly enjoy as they try to spot all the magician actors in the film.
