The theme of the May 2018 Action/Crime/Thriller FEEDBACK Film Festival was “Hidden Truths”. Every single film was about a world or characters dealing with underlying truths that are always playing conflict to the surface of the story.

I love when we showcase these genres at the festival. What filmmakers are coming up these days with when using these genres are their template tone is truly remarkable. Our audiences in Los Angeles and Toronto love when we show them too as you can see in the FEEDBACK Videos that there isn’t an empty seat inside the cinema.

One of the issues on the Festival circuit is that these types of films also do not get the acceptances that they should. A lot of festivals don’t want to program these films because they don’t know where to put them on their schedule. That is the #1 reason why we started doing a special event for JUST these types of films.

There is a great social commentary happening too with all 7 films we programmed at this festival. There is great action taking place, but they are also stories about important issues.

Great festival event. Can’t wait to program the next one.

See you at the festivals.

CROSSROADS Short Film – Audience FEEDBACK from the THRILLER May 2018 Festival

CROSSROADS, 12min, USA, Thriller/Drama
Directed by Marvin Nuecklaus

Karen, a young, traumatized and abused woman is interrogated after she was found unconscious in a desolate desert. According to her, she witnessed a murder and is forced to relive the traumatic events in order to bring light to this case. A case that first seems straightforward but the story has holes due to her memory loss, the evidence doesn’t quite match, and a non-processed childhood trauma seems to hold the key to crack the case.

Directed by Luigi Comandatore

Shows us that when the need to be something other than what we are, becomes too much to bare, sometimes we choose the extreme solution to our problem. The result can change us forever, but leave us with conflicted feelings that are still too much to bare.
