"Hopefully it takes many viewings, like all good films, to pick up every single thing that the director is playing with," Bana said. "I think the themes and ideas of this film are so large that it's not something that you watch once and get everything."
A PBS crew is also shooting a documentary on Livingston and producer Ken Meyerıs efforts to sell the film at the festival's market. The documentary will air in the fall on U.S. television.
So, You've Downloaded A Demon is a comedy geared towards the youth market, co-written by Livingston and writer/co-producer Nicholas Capetanakis. It features a young cast teamed with genre actress Xenia Seeberg in a story in which a college student accidentally downloads and is possessed by a demon.
Livingston's next graphic novel, The Wicked West, will be released this fall.
