Dan Mirvish is a director, screenwriter, producer and author. Prior to making BERNARD AND HUEY, Dan's film BETWEEN US was an award-winning feature starring David Harbour, Julia Stiles, Taye Diggs and Melissa George, played in 23 festivals in 7 countries, and got a 50+ city theatrical release plus Showtime, Starz, Netflix and sold to 144 countries, including Iran and North Korea. Dan was mentored by Robert Altman on his first film, OMAHA (THE MOVIE) which led him to co-founding the upstart Slamdance Film Festival that runs concurrent with Sundance. His film OPEN HOUSE led the Academy Awards to controversially rewrite their rules on the Best Original Musical category. Mirvish wrote the critically-acclaimed book THE CHEERFUL SUBVERSIVE'S GUIDE TO INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING for Focal Press/Routledge, and he co-wrote the best-selling novel I AM MARTIN EISENSTADT (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) based on the fake McCain advisor who took credit for Sarah Palin not knowing Africa was a continent.

BERNARD AND HUEY
Directed by Slamdance Film Festival co-founder Dan Mirvish (BETWEEN US) from a long-lost script by Oscar/Pulitzer-winning cartoonist and screenwriter Jules Feiffer (Mike Nichols’ CARNAL KNOWLEDGE, Robert Altman’s POPEYE) based on characters that date back to 1957, BERNARD AND HUEY is the story of roguish Huey (David Koechner, ANCHORMAN) and nebbishy Bernard (Oscar-winner Jim Rash, THE WAY WAY BACK), who are unlikely collegiate friends in late 1980s New York. Years later, a bedraggled Huey crashes at Bernard’s upscale bachelor pad. As the two reconnect, Bernard falls in love with Huey’s estranged daughter Zelda (Mae Whitman, GOOD GIRLS), an aspiring graphic novelist who's got a seductive new creative partner, Conrad (Eka Darville, JESSICA JONES). Huey slowly gets his mojo back and tries to seduce the various women in Bernard’s life, including his off-again girlfriend Roz (Sasha Alexander, RIZZOLI AND ISLES) and colleague, Mona (Nancy Travis, SO I MARRIED AN AXE MURDERER), while reconnecting with his ex-wife (Bellamy Young, SCANDAL) and brother (Richard Kind, ARGO). As Bernard and Huey return to their old ways, at least one of them finds himself in danger of marrying a woman old enough to be his wife. An award-winning film that's screened at over 25 festivals in 5 continents, BERNARD AND HUEY is a particularly timely story of two men behaving badly, and the smart women who rein them in.
