Adam Nimoy's For The Love of Spock at Tribeca Film Festival

Adam Nimoy’s ‘For the Love of Spock’ Premieres at Tribeca Film Festival

April 18, 2016 To further ensure Leonard Nimoy’s legacy, both personally and in television, his son, Adam Nimoy, produced a documentary For the Love of Spock, which made its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend.

In his introduction to the premiere, Nimoy gave a shout out to New York Film Academy graduate, Luke Snailham, who was one of the two editors of the film. Nimoy also thanked NYFA for its support, which included filmmaking resources and other students and staff as part of its crew. In addition to teaching at the New York Film Academy Los Angeles, Nimoy has directed over forty-five hours of television including episodes of NYPD Blue, The Practice, Ally McBeal and Gilmore Girls. Now, Nimoy set his sights on something very close to home.

"For The Love Of Spock" celebrates the upcoming 50th Anniversary of Star Trek through a personal, intimate look at the life and career of Leonard Nimoy, and his alter-ego, Mr. Spock, as told by his son, Adam Nimoy.

The film initially began as project headed up by Adam and his father. However, after the passing of Leonard, Adam was determined to complete the film in honor of his father’s contribution to television, as well as to highlight his own personal relationship while growing up with the icon. After raising over $660,000 dollars though a Kickstarter campaign, Adam knew his film was bound to prosper.

The documentary includes appearances and stories from several of original Star Trek cast members such as William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, and George Takei. Narrating the film is Zachary Quinto, who played Spock in the most recent Star Trek movies from J.J. Abrams.

While Star Trek fans will undoubtedly adore the documentary, the film should also strike a chord with traditional audiences through its emotional and heartwarming exploration of the Nimoy father, son relationship.
