Anton’s birthday is next month, and the Anton Yelchin Foundation has organized a celebration for it. His birthday is on the 11th, but the celebration will be held on the 10th, Sunday, so it will be easier for people to come. All friends and fans are invited, 12pm at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery; there will be refreshments and music. Hope you guys can come and please help spread the word! If you can’t go (like me, sadly), they will stream on both days, Sunday and Monday, through their social media accounts: @antonfoundation on Twitter and @antonyelchinfoundation on Instagram.

Besides being an actor, Anton loved photography. Two years ago, the Anton Yelchin: Provocative Beauty exhibit featuring photos from Anton’s six-year photography work was opened in public in two cities, Los Angeles and New York. Now, the Anton Yelchin Foundation is making some of those photos available for print purchasing. All proceeds will go to the foundation, which will further help their cause.

For the list and previews of photos available (including print sizes and prices), you can view/download the catalog either via the foundation’s website or via Dropbox.

If you’re interested in purchasing a print, contact antonyelchinphotographysales@gmail.com, and include your name, contact information, and which print number you would like to purchase.

The documentary film, Love, Antosha, which presents a heartfelt portrait of Anton’s life and career, is set to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Here are the screening dates and times:

Saturday, February 2nd

Prolific young actor Anton Yelchin was wise beyond his years and influenced everyone around him to strive for more. Love, Antosha tells the story of Yelchin’s creative persistence. His devoted Russian parents nurtured his love of acting, exposing him to works of the masters. Filming himself became a tool for his transformation; reflecting on his own performance, he pushed himself to find depth in every role. Often the youngest actor on set, Yelchin’s intense focus inspired many actors around him—Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pine, and John Cho share revealing insights into his character. Though he kept it a secret, Yelchin lived with a dangerous health condition, but he never became discouraged. As he grew into his craft, he continually enriched his understanding of the world, embodying an incredible authenticity.

Last year, there was an exhibit that showcased Anton’s photography in Los Angeles. This time, it’s New York’s turn. De Buck Gallery will be hosting the exhibit, which features 54 photos from Anton’s six-year photography work. The exhibit will open on December 13th and will run until January 20th. For more details and the gallery address, visit the De Buck Gallery’s website!

NEW YORK—De Buck Gallery is pleased to present Anton Yelchin: Provocative Beauty. The exhibition will open Wednesday, December 13, 2017 and will remain open until Saturday, January 20, 2018. The selection of 54 mages spans from a productive 6-year period of photographic exploration.

At the time of his tragic passing at the age of 27, unbeknownst to most of his friends, Anton was pursuing a second career as a photographer. During this period, he documented a wide range of subjects using a Leica camera as well as disposable cameras. This exhibition focuses on portraits, self-portraits and interior images that Anton captured while exploring this private world. These photos include many intimate portraits of friends, family and also complete strangers. All of these people trusted Anton to convey his intimate interactions with them.

Anton was known primarily for his work as an actor in films such as Star Trek, Green Room, Like Crazy, Terminator: Salvation, Alpha Dog and many more. Yelchin’s career began as a child when he received rolls in Curb Your EnthusiasmThe Practice, Hearts in Atlantis, Delivering Milo, and ER. Passionate about photography since childhood, Yelchin was embarking on a second career as a photographer at the end of his short but beautifully-lived life, having been commissioned to shoot for a number of international publications.

De Buck Gallery wishes to honor the legacy of Anton Yelchin’s life and to recognize the tremendous creative energy, output and talent that he possessed.

The artist’s portion of proceeds from sales will be donated to the Anton Yelchin Foundation. These funds will be used for a variety of programs empowering artists who face career challenges due to debilitating disease or disability.

The exhibition is co-curated by Clayton Calvert and Rachel Vancelette.

Like Crazy director, Drake Doremus, shared a moving two-minute video tribute to Anton yesterday. It features candid and behind-the-scenes moments from when they were filming the movie. It’s such a moving, heartbreaking video with a simple message that hits too close to our hearts.

The parents of actor Anton Yelchin will file a wrongful death lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler on Tuesday, their attorney announced.

The “Star Trek” actor was killed June 19 when his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled backwards down the driveway at his Studio City home and pinned him against a brick pillar. He was 27 years old.

Yelchin’s vehicle was under recall, after Fiat Chrysler and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received numerous complaints about confusion caused by the gear shifter. Some drivers have exited the vehicle believing the vehicle was in park when in fact it was in neutral, leading to “rollaway” crashes. The NHTSA is aware of nearly 700 complaints about the issue, including 266 accidents, of which 68 involved injuries. Yelchin’s crash is still being investigated, but is believed to be the only fatality related to the issue.

Yelchin’s parents, Viktor and Irina Yelchin, will file suit against Fiat Chrysler as well as retail chain AutoNation and ZF North America, which manufactured the gear shifter. Yelchin’s attorney, Gary Dordick, is expected to announce the lawsuit at a press conference on Tuesday morning.
