When an uptight time-travelling obsessed young scientist is visited by his nihilistic future self, he’s told that he needs to give up his dream of becoming the world’s first time traveler, or else. But when he won’t go along with the plan, it becomes a wicked battle of man versus himself – literally.
James vs His Future Self was shot in Sudbury, Ontario, in 2018. It won four awards at the 2019 Toronto After Dark Film Festival including Best Sci-Fi Film, Best Canadian Feature Film and Best Supporting Actor for Daniel Stern. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the temporary closing of cinemas, it was decided in late March to release this film through various Video-on-Demand (VOD) services, including iTunes, Bell and Shaw.
