Congrats to our first 5 selections- we’ll be announcing our final program of 15 selections on December 1st. See you at Pendance 2017!

Fuzzy Logic Pictures – 2 selections

We love Fuzzy Logic Pictures. The studio screens twice at Pendance 2017- first with a special out-of-competition screening of the Live-action Oscar winner Curfew, starring Fátima Ptacek (Dora the Explorer, Before I Disappear) and Shawn Christensen (Sidney Hall, Before I disappear). Next, in competition, we’ll screen the wonderful Cul-de-Sac, a thriller by Damon Russell, starring Shawn and Phoebe Tonkin (Vampire Diaries), a brilliant pairing. Follow the films here; Curfew (short film) and Cul•de•Sac – short film.

‘A Gentle Night’ is the first official selection

Qiu Yang’s 2017 Cannes Palme d’Or winning short film ‘A Gentle Night’ is the first official selection of the Pendance Film Festival.

Overcome with grief after her 13 year old daughter goes missing, a desperate mother goes out to search for her daughter in this nameless Chinese city. The film is a visual masterpiece, and we cannot express how pleased we are to announce its’ inclusion in our festival.
