In recent years, an increasing number of concerned consumers have started to question how our current, and often chemically fuelled, way of life is affecting not only us, but the earth as well. There are numerous industries whose practices have been challenged by those who see them as destructive, and have inspired an organic response, but there’s perhaps none as visible or intuitive as farming. It makes sense then, that one of the many stops for the team behind new ONE series Organic Panic, now in production, would be a centre for urban agriculture that’s proving farming and city life don’t need to be mutually exclusive. Executive Produced by Moses Znaimer and Produced by Chris Remerowski and David Bratton of Sixteen Films Ltd., Organic Panic is expected to premiere September 2014 with exact dates to be announced soon.”
Sixteen Films’ new short “Peter and Jane Know Some of the Same People” will play at the Canadian Film Festival’s closing night gala. This is Sixteen Films’ third project to show at the CFF.
Writer/director Chris Remerowski and producer David Bratton are longtime friends and creative partners who have been making film and television together in Toronto for over 10 years. Their first feature ever showed at the Canadian Film Festival, and they are proud and pleased to once again be a part of this fantastic event.
About Peter and Jane
Peter and Jane met on the Internet. Peter and Jane liked each others profiles and decided to go out on a date. Peter and Jane are about to discover that what gets left out can be a lot more interesting than what stays in–and a lot more dangerous.
With an intense score by Toronto band SlashRun, comedy/thriller “Peter and Jane” delivers laughter and chills, and keeps you guessing until the last frame.
“Sample Return” is a short sci-fi comedy film produced for bravoFACT. In “Sample Return”, Commanders Moreau and Patrel, jaded freelance astronauts, co-pilots and frenemies, voyage between the stars in search of new, slightly better jobs.
While their partnership is strictly platonic, they enjoy passionate repartee. As intergalactic temps, Moreau and Patrel are sick of taking what they can get by way of underpaid, boring labour. Currently tasked with returning a “sample” from an alien planet, they decide to throw caution to the wind and focus on themselves. From the bridge of their space ship, Moreau searches an interstellar “Craigslist”, offering fresh opportunities to Patrel, who shoots each one down in turn. Whether it’s moisture farming, platinum mining or helium transport, Moreau is unable to convince her grandiose business partner, Comander Patrel to sign up.
As they drift further from the business at hand, they drift closer to disaster as their less-than reliable provides several moments of terror. Finally, putting aside their differences and working together, Moreau and Patrel complete yet another sample return mission. But wait until you find out what kind of sample they’re returning…”
