Come say wassup at the 2012 Dark Fest in Kamloops!

Hey all! The 16th Kamloops Canadian and International Film Festival has wisely taken a genre left turn this year; adding a genre wing to its programming called DARK FEST (streamlined by Jason and Shawn, co-hosts of 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops' review show (Film Reviews from the Basement.) And yup yours truly will be there to celebrate its inception, give away some AITH schwag, show some of my past work (namely Deaden and The Red Hours) and take a QNA from the audience. So if you're a Kamloops resident or are in the area at the time, come say hello! I'll be the guy wearing the Habs gear :) Here's the official press release to get the full deets!

The festival kicks off March 9 at 7 p.m. with   "Hobo With a Shotgun".

Fallon will introduce "Deaden" at 9 p.m. He wrote and stars in this actioner, shot in his native Montreal under the direction of Christian Viel. Deaden follows ex-undercover cop turned biker Rane, who witnesses the brutal murder of his pregnant wife before being left for dead with an arrow in the head. Upon his exit from hospital, Rane arms himself to the teeth and goes on an substance fueled, psychotic rampage. in the name of retribution. Fallon will conduct a brief Q&A after the film.

The festival resumes at 7 p.m. on March 10 with Sevé Schelenz's Canadian found-footage horror film "Skew". The film has screened at 40 film festivals worldwide and we're excited to make it a part of our first Dark Fest. Schelenz's tale follows Simon, Rich, and Eva as they head out on an eagerly anticipated road trip, they bring along a video camera to record their journey. What starts out as a carefree adventure slowly becomes a descent into the ominous as unexplained events threaten to disrupt the balance between the three close friends.

"Dark Fest" concludes with "Some Guy Who Kills People" at 9 p.m. Jack Perez's horror comedy is about a small town loser who, fresh out of the looney bin, seeks revenge on those he deems responsible for ruining his life.
