Mongrel Media Likes Boys vs. Girls
by Staff

(August 11, 2020 – Toronto, ON) The award-winning feature film Boys vs. Girls from writer-director Mike Stasko has received a nice boost. Toronto-based distributor Mongrel Media has acquired the comedy for Canada and the U.S. distribution company Gravitas Ventures (a Red Arrow Studios company) has taken rights for the United States and International Sales.

Starring Colin Mochrie, Kevin McDonald, Eric Osborne and Rachel Dagenais, Boys vs. Girls is set in the usually tame 1990s but things go awry when the summer camp, Camp Kindlewood, is forced to go co-ed for the first time in its seventy-year existence. The result? Sparks fly between the councellors.

“Having both of these companies as partners is huge for us. Mongrel Media is a leader in the business and Gravitas Ventures has a stellar track record that speaks for itself”, said writer-director Mike Stasko. “Working with these amazing partners is going to get our film out to the largest possible audience, and as filmmakers that’s the ultimate goal,” said Producer Theodore Bezaire. Both Mongrel Media and Gravitas Ventures are currently working on release strategies and plans to roll out the film on various platforms in the near future.

Shot in the Windsor/Essex region of Southern Ontario Boys vs. Girls had a successful festival run winning various awards including the Best Feature Film & Audience Choice at the Chicago Comedy Film Festival, Best Canadian Feature at the Canadian International Comedy Film Festival, and Best Ensemble Cast at the Florida Comedy Film Festival.

No release dates have been announced.

Boys vs. Girls, movie, image,

It’s the summer of 1990 and Camp Kindlewood has been forced to go co-ed for the first time in its seventy-year existence. Roger (Colin Mochrie), the camp director, tries to convince both sides that this is a great idea in an effort to keep the camp off the corporate chopping block. But after head counsellors Dale (Eric Osborne) and Amber (Rachel Dagenais) have an awkward encounter, all bets are off. Both Dale and Amber rally their sides in an attempt to win back their camp and gain dominance over what they feel is rightfully theirs. This battle sets off a series of pranks and mischief, fueled by camp caretaker Coffee (Kevin McDonald), as the boys and girls fight for their summertime home.

Boys vs Girls is loosely inspired by writer/director Mike Stasko’s experiences going to camp as a child at YMCA Camp Kitchikewana in Northern Ontario.

Gaby (Chelsea Peretti) wants desperately to find love. Recently dumped and on the brink of forty, she feels she doesn’t matter to anyone. Her best friend is pre occupied with her kids, her family doesn’t get her and running her own catering business, mostly weddings, serves as a constant reminder of the love that has eluded her. Gaby’s greatest fear, that she’ll end up a lonely and pathetic spinster, seems to be her destiny. After a frenzy of dating leaves her exhausted and demoralized, Gaby admits she might never find love and must create a Plan B. Gaby begins to build a meaningful and connected life. But when a chance romantic encounter with Mr. Right threatens to uproot her, she realizes the value of her life, even if it doesn’t involve romance.

Spinster was shot on location in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Katie Boland Shoots
by Ralph Lucas – Publisher

(August 5, 2020 – Toronto, ON) One of the things I love about my job is watching people grow, stretch, take risks with their careers and learn to either punch above their weight or to roll with the punches when things don’t work out. The first time I had a chance to say hello to Katie Boland was in 2013 when that year’s Canadian Screen Awards were being announced. She had more than 20 credits to her name by then including appearances in The Life Before This, Some Things That Stay, Away From Her, Growing Op and many more.

Today came the news that she will move her career behind the camera as she begins production this week in Hamilton, Ontario on her directorial debut, We’re All In This Together.
Katie Boland, actress,
Boland adapted the screenplay from Amy Jones’ best-selling novel and will also star in the film playing the dual roles of twins Finn and Nicki Parker. The basic plot follows the dysfunctional Parker family after a woman goes over a waterfall, a video goes viral, and the family unravels. Costars include Martha Burns as Kate Parker and Alisha Newton as Paris Parker. More cast members will be announced shortly.

“Adapting this incredible book for the big screen and sitting in the director’s chair have been such a gratifying experience,” said Katie Boland. “Playing twin characters Finn and Nicki Parker is an actor’s dream, but also being able to bring together this incredible cast and crew makes this entire project a highlight of my career.”

While this is her first feature, Boland has been behind the camera before. Her directorial debut came with a series of short films including her third short Lolz-Ita, which was a Vimeo Staff Pick, part of TIFF’s: Share Her Journey and was nominated for Jury Prizes at the Austin Film Festival, Cucalorus, Dallas and Whistler Film Festivals.

Jay Firestone of Prodigy Pictures is Executive Producer with Gail Harvey of Straight Shooters and John Laing of Urban Post producing alongside Boland, Paula Brancati and Associate Producer Mark Pancer. We’re All In This Together received financial support from Telefilm Canada and The Harold Greenberg Fund.
