BEHIND YOUR EYES: Official Selection at the 2011 Canada International Film Festival
It is my pleasure, and honor to tell you… the WAMG family… that BEHIND YOUR EYES has been officially selected to be featured at the 2011 Canada International Film Festival. Not only is is an official selection, but this will be the first public screening of the film.
You may be asking yourself why it is my pleasure to share this with you. Well, two of the films stars, who have worked very hard on this project happen to be friends of mine. This is not a Melissa “bragging” moment. Instead, this is a “Melissa is very proud of Tom Sandoval and Kristen Doute for all of your hard work, and I want to shout it from the rooftops… or this internet page!” kind of post.
Young couple Erika (Erika Johnson) and Steven (Tom Sandoval) embark on a weekend retreat to meet Steven’s parents. When the couple is kidnapped and held hostage, it’s a fight for their lives against their mysterious abductor. As he tortures and teases them, secrets from the past emerge and change everything. When Erika escapes, the film plunges the viewer further into uncharted territory and unyielding mayhem.
A press release from Vesuvio Entertainment Corp. announced earlier this week:
Vesuvio Entertainment Corp. announces the first public screening of BEHIND YOUR EYES, an indie psycho-thriller at the 2011 Canada International Film Festival on Sunday, April 3, 2011. The independent feature will be one of the biggest draws to Vancouver, BC’s film festival showcasing global filmmakers in over 25 international productions, including nine Canadian films.
“Vancouver is the perfect place for us to debut our movie to a film community that treasures and supports ambitious independent film production. I love Vancouver, have chosen to produce many films here and even have two more scheduled to begin shooting in Canada in 2011,” states Greg Sims, Executive Producer and CEO of Vesuvio Entertainment Corp.
It’s rare that a Canadian writer & lead actor (Daniel Fanaberia) and a Canadian director (Clint Lien) make an indie movie in Hollywood. But that’s what happens when you throw into the movie-making formula Executive Producer Greg Sims, a Hollywood veteran who has an uncanny knack for combining up-and-coming talent with genre films and exclusivity on exciting new music to make magic happen on screen.
The film’s budding crew members (in front and behind the camera) are all ones to watch, given Sims’ success rate: Sims has discovered and placed actors George Clooney, Amanda Peet, and Michael Vartan in their first critically acclaimed feature films, and even an early showcase for ‘Glee’ star Jane Lynch. “Talk to people about Greg Sims, and you start to hear the same thing: the man has an eye for talent,” Moving Pictures Magazine, Cannes Film Festival.
The edge of your seat thriller, BEHIND YOUR EYES, is sure to leave the premier audience intrigued and unsettled by the gritty, realistic nature of the plot twists and performances. DreadCentral.com describes the feature film as a “multi-layered cinematic canvas…Daniel Fanaberia delivers not only a compelling script, but also a commanding performance.”
BEHIND YOUR EYES will be playing at the 2011 CANADA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL on APRIL 3 at 3:55pm. For Vancouver ticketing info click HERE
