Top 7 Reasons to Go

Another Life screens at the Newport Beach Film Festival next week! At this crucial milestone in our festival run, we need all the support we can get, so please come out and support!

Trailer, tickets, links, etc. can all be found here.

Wait... why should you go? Let me give you the Top 7 Reasons:

1) Another Life won the Gold for Best Dramatic Original Short at the Houston International Film Festival.

2) Another Life was called "one of the best independent short films" by Hollywire.

Another Life also won as the Award of Merit at the Accolade Competition.

4) Another Life also screens with The Legend of Beaver Dam, a Sundance favorite and horror musical about a campfire ghost story that awakens an evil monster, and now it’s up to nerdy Danny Zigwitz to save his fellow campers from a bloody massacre. Heads will rock’n'roll! Check out their trailer:

5) Another Life also screens with Tinglewood, another Sundance official selection that's a Fargo-esque journey delivering a darkly hilarious, strangely touching, and shockingly poetic look at life, death, and love on the prairie. Check out their trailer here:

6) Another Life also screens with The Absence which has been sweeping the festival circuit, a slow-burn thriller about a corporate bureaucrat sent to a mysterious town where he must confront the devastating consequences of his work. Here's their trailer:

7) Another Life also screens with Abandon about a mysterious woman who travels a desolate highway, on the run from her violent past. When a benevolent stranger offers her a ride, the woman finds a companion to join her in her lonely journey. But each mile that brings them closer together, also brings them closer to the dark secret waiting at their next exit... Check out their trailer here:

Seriously, how can you miss out on all this good stuff in one night?

Your tickets are waiting for you...
