The mission and purpose of the Dark Bridges Film Festival in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is a simple one. It brings quality genre fare to a market that has little to no chance of ever seeing any of these films in a theatrical release. Director John Allison and his team of dead sexy programmers have done a dandy job bringing together a lot of festival favourites.
The Festival opens with Oscar Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film Bullhead, moody vampire flick Midnight Son, 80s VHS culture homage Manborg, the Canadian Theatrical Premiere of the very Coenesque Aussie flick Crawl, the effed-up hitman flick Kill List, cult car flick Blood Car, the supernatural family drama from Sweden Marianne, the fantastic horror comedy Some Guy Who Kills People, the Canadian cannibal comedy Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal, Xavier Gens' apocalyptic flick The Divide, Danish raunchy comedy Klown, German fairy tale Sandman, the Korean action box office success of 2011 War of the Arrows, the very surreal and very funny Symbol by Hitoshi Matsumoto, and the festival closes off with Ti West's haunted hotel flick The Innkeepers.
3rd Annual Dark Bridges Film Festival this May 3rd - 6th, 2012
The Dark Bridges Film Festival (www.darkbridges.com) is pleased to announce our Third Annual Film Festival. The Festival runs May 3rd - 6th, 2012 and will consist of 15 feature films, 25 short films and our popular Zombie Walk. The festival highlights foreign, independent and Canadian films which are not provided with the chance to receive a theatrical release.
Film highlights of this year's festival include our opening night film, BULLHEAD. BULLHEAD is an exceptionally powerful drama that was nominated at the Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film. Dark Bridges is also very pleased to present a Special Advance Screening of the joint Canada/Denmark film EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL. The festival will also present the Canadian Theatrical Premiere of the Coen Brothers and Hitchcock influenced Australian thriller CRAWL.
Special guests attending this year's festival include Boris Rodriguez, the Director of EDDIE: THE SLEEPWALKING CANNIBAL, Zak Kilberg, the lead actor of realistic vampire story MIDNIGHT SON and also Saskatoon's own Michael Eklund will be introducing and doing a Q&A session following the screening of his movie THE DIVIDE.
In addition to the films we will once again be running our Zombie Walk. Last year's walk brought the Broadway Bridge to a crawl and we hope to have an even better turn out for this year's family friendly walk.
I believe the words you are looking for Saskatoon are, 'Thank You'. Visit the official site for ticket information!
