Poor Agnes

98 minutes – Horror, Thriller
Festival Release date: July 19, 2017 (Fantasia)
Release date: November 10, 2017 (Toronto)
Canadian distributor:

Agnes is a serial killer. She kidnaps and tortures men before murdering them, and she’s good at it. Ambitious, cunning, and narcissistic, Agnes hides in plain sight within a rural town while defining her own systems of sport and romance. When Mike, a private investigator, shows up on her doorstep to look into the cold-case disappearance of one of her early victims, she seduces him and traps him in her basement. Through an unlikely alignment of survival strategy and remorselessness, Agnes bonds with Mike, and he becomes a willing participant in their psychological power game. The circumstances of their curiously morbid relationship progress as their dynamic evolves, and the film is sent into an engrossing tailspin.

Poor Agnes was filmed in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It had its World Premiere at the 2017 Fantasia Film Festival in Montréal, Québec.

Let There Be Light

84 minutes – documentary
Release date: May 20, 2017 (SXSW Film Festival)
Production Company: EyeSteelFilm
Distributor: Submarine Entertainment

In the south of France, scientists from 37 countries are building the most complex machine ever attempted: an artificial sun. If they get it right, it will illuminate the way to produce clean, cheap, abundant energy for millions of years. If they fail, it will be one of the biggest scientific failures of all time. Nuclear fusion has been the holy grail of energy for many decades now. It’s the process that drives stars, the ultimate source of energy in the universe. The possibility that fusion might be achievable on Earth as an energy source has driven scientists to the edge of reason for almost a century.

Let There Be Light had its World Premiere and was the opening film in the SXSW Film Festival Documentary Competition.

Reid Asselstine

Reid Asselstine, actress,

Reid Asselstine started off as a film student but soon realized her talent as an actress when her fellow students kept on insisting that she act in their films. In 2011, she starred in Not Worth Mentioning, a short film that was chosen to screen in the Toronto International Film Festival’s Student Showcase. It was this role that led to her acting being seen by York University professor Barta, which eventually caused her to be cast in Wexford Plaza.

Meet Stegman. He’s dead. In this crime comedy, bizarre assassins must come together to unravel the puzzle of Stegman’s blackmail secret, and why he’s already dead on the set of his own porn film. Stegman’s secret is somewhere within the rooms of his expansive suburban seventies bungalow, and the cops are already circling. Gus and Evy, two of the central characters, must escape Stegman’s house only to discover the true nature of his secret at last, and with it, the awful realization that now… they have to break back in.
