The fine art of the "toast" at Armenian dinners is passed on from generation to generation. It's aim is to touch the hearts of all dinner guests and remind us of our humanity. This is the basis of  "ToastMaster," a new independent feature having its World Premiere in the Cave Theatre in Deerfield Ranch Winery.  Alek & Mariella find themselves at their reclusive uncle's house, in Glendale, California, surrounded by his parrot, sheep, and rooster, while awaiting Alek's mother's second wedding. Uncle Kapriel realizes this weekend is his perfect opportunity to teach Alek their ancient Armenian tradition, Toastmaster, just in time for his mother's wedding. What Uncle Kapriel does not expect, is what his nephew will uncover about his secret past.

Director Eric Boadella is a self-taught filmmaker from Barcelona, Spain. He is an awarded music video director who now focuses on writing and directing narrative films.
