The Last Film Festival is an American comedy film from 2016 that stars the late actor and director Dennis Hopper, along with Jacqueline Bisset and Jobeth Williams. The film is directed by Linda Yellen and features a cast of familiar faces from Hollywood's past and present. The film takes place in a small town called O'Hi that hosts a struggling film festival. Harry Burke (Dennis Hopper) is a former Hollywood producer who now lives in the town and has been tasked with saving the festival from going bankrupt. He is an eccentric man who is still trying to live up to his past success and is determined to make the festival a success, even though everyone else thinks it's a lost cause.

Harry's daughter, Claire (Katrina Bowden), is a struggling actress who has come to the festival hoping to catch a break. She's been in town for a couple of days and hasn't gotten any auditions yet, but she's determined to make it in Hollywood. She also meets a local man named C.C. (Chris Kattan), who is trying to win her heart.

Meanwhile, Joanne (Jacqueline Bisset) is a former film star who is now the festival's director. She's desperate to make the festival a success, but she's facing obstacles at every turn. Her ex-husband, Hal (Joseph Cross), is the festival's programmer, and he's sabotaging her efforts by booking terrible films.

As the festival goes on, tensions rise, and things start to fall apart. Harry and Joanne clash over how to save the festival, Claire gets involved with the wrong people, and C.C. tries to win her heart. Eventually, the festival becomes a chaotic mess, and it looks like it's going to be a total failure.

The Last Film Festival is a lighthearted comedy that pokes fun at Hollywood and the film festival circuit. It's filled with quirky characters and over-the-top moments that make it a fun watch. Dennis Hopper's performance as the eccentric Harry Burke is a highlight of the film, and he brings a lot of energy and charm to the role.

Jacqueline Bisset and JoBeth Williams also give great performances as Joanne and her best friend, Mary. Both actresses bring a sense of gravitas to the film, and they play well off of one another. Katrina Bowden is also a standout as Claire, and she brings a fresh, youthful energy to the film.

Overall, The Last Film Festival is a fun and entertaining movie that will appeal to anyone who loves movies and the quirky characters that inhabit the film industry. It's a funny, but heartfelt look at what it takes to make it in Hollywood, and it's a fitting tribute to the late Dennis Hopper, who gives a memorable performance in one of his final roles.
