Dim The Fluorescents follows the friendship and creative partnership between struggling actor Audrey (Claire Armstrong) and aspiring playwright Lillian (Naomi Skwarna). Lacking a proper outlet for their creativity, they funnel all of their considerable passion and talent into the only paying work they can find: role-playing demonstrations for corporate seminars. When Lillian and Audrey book their biggest gig to date – at a hotel conference with an expected audience of three-hundred – their lengthy and emotionally fraught rehearsal process, two lifetimes’ worth of personal, professional and creative compromises rise to the surface and the ensuing tensions threaten to derail both the production and their friendship.

Named best feature at the Slamdance film festival in Park City, Utah, Northernstars selected Dim The Fluorescents as one of the Top 10 Canadian Films of 2017.
