We were all captivated by the prison escape that was close to our area back in 2015. Now that the mini series movie is complete, the premier will be at a very prestigious film festival. According to the Times Union, "Escape At Dannemora" is an eight part mini series based on the escape from Clinton Correctional Facility that sparked a massive manhunt for convicted murderers Richard Matt and David Sweat. The two were helped by prison seamstress Joyce Mitchell who was having an affair with the prisoners. It was announced that the movie will premier during this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Director and executive producer, Ben Stiller, will most likely attend the premier. The cast may be there as well. It includes Oscar winners Benecio Del Toro who will play Richard Matt and Patricia Arquette will play Joyce Mitchell.

The world premier screening of "Escape At Dannemora" will be at the Cannes Film Festival in October.
