Dim the Fluorescents gets Canadian distribution
The Slamdance winner, directed by Daniel Warth, was produced by Toronto's Clumsy Ophelia Productions.
Toronto-based boutique distributor Films We Like has picked up Dim the Fluorescents for distribution in Canada.
Daniel Warth’s debut feature recently won the Grand Jury Prize for Narrative Feature at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT.
Dim the Fluorescents is set to have a cross-Canada theatrical release this fall, followed by a wide digital release targeting SVOD, streaming and airline services.
The comedy, about a struggling actor (Claire Armstrong) and aspiring playwright (Naomi Skwarna) who are paid to perform corporate role-playing demonstrations, is the first film produced by Toronto-based prodco Clumsy Ophelia Productions. It was co-written by Warth and Miles Barstead, who also composed the score, while Josh Clavir served as producer.
The deal was struck between FWL’s Ron Mann and Warth and Clavir.
