We are excited to announce another great "Official Selection" just added to the festival line up!

LOST ANGLES

Lost Angels is a music/drama set to the soulful sounds of Oliver Pigott, the contestant Canadian Idol judges stated was perhaps the most talented person to ever audition for the show. Other name talent include, Alimi Ballard (NUMBERS, The Fast Five) and Robert Pralgo (The Vampire Diaries). Hollywood has always held a universal fascination for audiences but rarely is its true nature honestly exposed. Lost Angels pulls no punches in revealing the unique and treacherous world that has no rules except those created by the power players within.

The first "Official Selection" in our Comedy category!

GET A JOB

Two friends attempt to find the dignity of gainful employment while bumbling through life and sharing the Aloha Spirit in Hawaii. Funny experiences enhance their journey while they share their special musicality and hilarious charms.

Great entertainment and the award winning soundtrack fit perfect for celebrating 2015 as the Year-of-the-Asian-Pacific-Islander. The Barefoot Natives, (Willie K and Eric Gilliom) showcase 18 original songs in the award winning “GET A JOB” soundtrack.

And Here's Another "Official Selection" film to help kick off our first round of selections!

Awaken

In this action thriller, Billie Kope, searching for her sister who disappeared in Mexico, awakens on a remote island with no memory of her abduction. She teams up with a group of survivors, where her skills in Russian Special Forces combat help them resist sinister black operations soldiers who hunt them down and abduct them for reasons unknown. For Billie, the mystery of the island is ultimately connected to the fate of her missing sister and one which when uncovered, will bring violence down on not only the island but the perpetrators of this bizarre and diabolical scheme in continual need of fresh victims to awaken
