EQF Update: Spring 2019

Happy Spring everyone, the sun is out, the snow is almost gone and I'm gonna buy a motorbike!

En Queue Film currently has two films, Adulthood a short horror-comedy about kids living in a world where growing up means becoming the undead, and Beneath the Painted Surface, our documentary about Destanne Norris, in consideration at 15 premiere film festivals around the world.

We will start hearing back from these film festivals in April and that will continue until Fall 2019.
Of course, if a festival makes any of our films an Official Selection we will let you know with banners and bells.

We currently have three features and two shorts in development, but the features have been seeking funding for some time. The shorts will probably happen this summer. One will likely be with young, award-winning filmmaker Bowen O'Brien (Adulthood). Stay tuned for those details.

Beneath the Painted Surface and its release represents our main focus these days. Getting it watched, seeking out funding, sales agency and/or distribution.

To that end we have prelaunched our Indiegogo fundraising campaign here

It will begin at 9am Monday April 29 2019. We are selling typical film perks but also the very unique opportunity to buy paintings made by artist Destanne Norris.
Those 14 paintings are available for purchase immediately and purchases of the largest paintings have access to Executive Producer credits and the perks that accompany it, (a contract, profit sharing.)

If you would like to look at the paintings or buy one please go here

Stay tuned, things are happening...

EQF submits film to Filmstro One Minute Film Contest

Brian C. Taylor and Bowen O'Brien (the guys that brought you Adulthood) have teamed up again to create a one minute film contest entry entitled Fear & Love: Everything you need to know in under a minute.

Fear & Love is a metaphorical tale of a young couple coming to terms with their emotions about not being able to have a baby. Everything in this film represents something and there's information hidden everywhere.

Who or what is the creature?
Why does it share it's red eye?
What is with the man's hair, or the woman's clothes?
Why does the wood pile appear in three different states?
Where does their child come from?

Answer these questions and glean Everything you need to know in under a minute.

Good luck to the cast and crew in this contest...

Watch here. Share freely.

Beneath the Painted Surface on schedule for completion

The rough cut has been viewed by our test audience and surveys have been completed.
The results of those surveys have been translated into changes to the film, for the better.

We haven't yet heard about our film festival submission of the rough cut, remaining "In Consideration." We missed our opportunity to submit to Cannes, which we are sad about, but the film will be finished in time to submit to our next festival, deadline December.

It's almost done already.

Adulthood wins big at Horrorfest X

Congratulations to Cast and Crew! Adulthood has won Best Picture and Best Story awards at Horrorfest X presented by the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking in Kelowna BC.

A panel of industry professionals chose our little film over some other excellent short films.

The Horrorfest audience seemed very surprised when writer and producer I announced that Adulthood was made by a fourteen year-old Bowen O'Brien. Bowen was able to give an acceptance speech as I used Duo, a videophone app, so that Bowen could witness the screening at the 19+ event. I held the microphone up to my phone, which I pointed at the audience, they could see Bowen, Bowen could see them (I think.)

Adulthood works as a picture because of the hard work that our cast and crew put into it.
Thank you so much.

And thanks to the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmakers as well as the other sponsors of Horrorfest. OSIF and EQF have had a long and beautiful friendship. 

I will be publishing more about the story of the making of Adulthood in forthcoming blogs.
We have entered the film into three more film festivals: Fantasia FF (Canada's premiere horror and sci-fi fest.) The Seattle International FF and Hollyshorts, a California fest specializing in shorts.

Update: Adulthood was shown at the Towne Theatre on monday night, previous to the Okanagan Screen Arts presentation. Bowen was able to attend and was thrilled to see his film on the very big screen.  It is my understanding that there's an opportunity to screen the film again in the future.

Further to this, Bowen and Brian are to be interviewed by the Morning Star newspaper.
