Poster for Magnificat Revealed!

It’s been a while since we heard anything on the Magnificat front, but today, Riley took to his Twitter to reveal the poster for his short film, Magnificat starring Mary.

Hopefully we’ll get some news as to the film premiering at some festival really soon. Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, head over to the gallery to see the photo full-sized. It looks so great!

Magnificat Update

Riley took to his Magnificat site and updated us about the film.

I’ll admit it, I’m bummed Magnificat wasn’t chosen to be part of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. I was really hoping we had a shot at Park City at Midnight (the genre portion of the festival) but I knew the chances were very slim considering the number of films submitted. I did hear that they liked the short though so that’s at least a bit of a consolation.

So what’s next? Mary’s film “Smashed” is in competition at Sundance this year so I’ll be tagging along with her and hopefully seeing a bunch of great movies. As far as the short goes, we’ve submitted the film to 15 other fests so far and we’ll slowly begin to hear from them after the new year. I’m so proud of the film and excited for people to see it. Fingers crossed.



Best of luck to Riley and Mary on their short!

Mary Starring in A New Short film, Magnificat!

Fantastic news, everyone! Mary’s husband, Riley Stearns, has announced that he has written and will be directing a new short film entitled Magnificat. Here’s what Riley posted:

My name is Riley Stearns. I’ve decided to create a tumblr (did I spell that correctly?) to keep people up to date with the goings on of a film I wrote and will be directing called “magnificat” starring the lovely and talented Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

I hope to post pictures, video, and audio here from time to time and give those curious a look into the making of the film. Until then, this bland introductory post will have to do.

Be sure to follow the film’s Tumblr for updates over at

This is really exciting news and I for one cannot wait to see the progress on the film. The very best of luck to Mary, Riley and everyone else involved in the film! 🙂
