Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Tom Schanley, and others star in "Baraboo" world premiere at AOF Fest 2011

Los Angeles, California, United States of America ( July 18, 2011 -- Actress Jennifer Siebel Newsom, wife of California Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, stars in the romantic comedy feature "Till You Get To Baraboo", which premieres worldwide in the Action On Film International Film Festival on July 25, 2011.

Siebel-Newsom plays Judy Claymore, the old flame of Roland Hayes (William Mendieta), who surprises him at his hotel room on the eve of her wedding to another man. Confusion, mayhem, and of course romance ensues.

A trailer for the film can be viewed on YouTube.

In "Baraboo", Mrs. Siebel-Newsom displays an enticingly playful wit as well as her trademark uncommon beauty. The filmmakers found her a delight to work with: "Jennifer brought charm and grace to her portrayal of Judy, an eternal optimist who urges others to look at the bright side and dwell on the positive," notes "Baraboo" writer-director Emmett Loverde. "She was everything we could have hoped for and more."

"Baraboo" also features actor Tom Schanley, currently starring with Roma Downey in the Hallmark Channel telefilm "Keeping Up With the Randalls"; Amanda Noret who co-starred as villainess Madison Sinclair on TV's "Veronica Mars"; William Mendieta, co-star of the festival favorite "Soldier of God", and Genevieve Zweig.

The film features music by folk-rock artist David Shepherd Grossman including his single "Darkness", the video for which features clips from "Baraboo".

The filmmakers are using the crowdfunding site to launch a “virtual box office” for the film, allowing viewers to support the release of the film in exchange for being able to view the film online, an exclusive limited edition DVD or Blu-Ray, T-shirts, or even a private screening in Los Angeles “Indiegogo has provided us a way to reach out to potential audiences in ways that are simply not possible using traditional distribution channels such as movie theaters and video stores,” Mr. Loverde notes. “We can now craft and fine-tune a release plan based on what viewers want to see and the ways they want to see it.”

The AOF Fest premiere marks the start of the journey of "Baraboo" through the festival circuit and into theaters and homes on DVD and On-Demand. AOF was named by Moviemaker Magazine as one of the “Top 25 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” in 2009. Success and widespread industry acceptance have recently enabled the Festival to launch the AOF Channel, a weekly television series which showcases the talents of Festival filmmakers via a traditional broadcast model.
