Director: Rajinder Singh Puller.
SMS is a simple story with strong McLuhan-ian undercurrents to it. A young girl is alone in a house that is broken into by burglars. Hiding for her life and desperate for help, her only way of communicating with the outside world is her new mobile phone; and there is only one number on it - a wrong number. Will she get help at all, and in time? How far will someone go to help someone whose identity is only a number on their mobile phone? The story subtly embodies McLuhan’s theory of technological determinism in saying that technology shapes our lives as we shaped it’s tools.

Archived festival (terminated)


Director: Christopher R. Witherspoon- Middle Man ( 2004 ).

     RAGE, a raw-nerve, suspense thriller film from independent filmmaker Christopher R. Witherspoon, combines a compelling story with nail biting action. The film is heavily influenced by the 1970's movie classic "Duel" by Steven Speilberg and Witherspoon's own personal demons. Set in Portland, Oregon, "Rage" delivers an explosive and controversial action packed thriller.

    The story begins when Dennis Twist, a 30-something man who lives in a "Spielbergian" suburb just outside of Portland says goodbye to his beautiful and loving wife Crystal and heads into town. There he unintentionally provokes the wrath of a mysterious motorcyclist. The confrontation between the two sets in motion a daylong battle of cat and mouse. Beginning in the form of harmless taunts; quickly escalating into something more serious, then...into something unimaginable!

A personal perspective of “HavoK” from writer/producer David A. Guest for Garner Alan Productions.

In April 2007, I was barely 19 and contemplating my options for the future. One of them was college…then the tragedy at Virginia Tech happened. It seemed to be the only story in the news for several weeks. Then, it just faded away…that stuck in my brain.”   Havok Poster2008 was a pivotal year in the life of writer/producer, David A. Guest. In addition to forming Garner Alan Productions with partner G. Garner Sweet, David co-wrote four original screenplays (©CIN; ©The Gamble; ©The Pai...

Dirty Step Upstage

Against the glamorous background of Cannes, a young singer's attempt to carve out stardom descends into a maze of anger and violence. Catching everything on camera, Amber looks on as scores are settled and events spin dangerously out of control. But the drama unfolding before the lens will change her in ways she can't imagine.

Director: Anthony Fankhauser.
A curious insurance investigator wonders why heavily insured young people are winding up dead in Los Angeles.  The common thread is the lobotomy holes in their heads, and the invitation to the elusive Tsunami Beach Club clutched in their hands.
