'Reitman on Reitman' to show at Just Comedy


NEW YORK - "Reitman on Reitman" -- a conversation between the father and son film-making duo will be one highlight of the Just Comedy Conference at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal this summer.

The July 17 event will have Ivan and Jason Reitman interviewing each other and sharing anecdotes about their experiences in the industry.

Just Comedy is a new comedy marketplace and trade conference organized by JFL and Achilles Media, the producer of the BanffWorld Television Festival. It coincides with the JFL festival.

Jason Reitman will also present a master class on filmmaking at Just Comedy, organizers said Wednesday.

The Reitmans are no strangers to the Canadian comedy festival. Jason screened four short movies at JFL's Comedia film portion before getting the attention of Hollywood, while his father was honored at JFL in 1996 with the Roots of Canadian Comedy award.
