Focus On: Best of VFF09


Last month, The Valley Film Festival launched its monthly series, Focus On:, with three awesome shorts:
  • The Horribly Slow Murderer w/the Highly Inefficient Weapon
  • The Last Tenant

This month, we're bringing you a feature that took home our juried "10 Degrees Hotter" award: TRUNK directed by Straw Weisman.

Synopsis: A beautiful young single mother is forced to defend herself against a serial killer rapist in what becomes a fight for her life when she is kidnapped in the trunk of his car.

Shot entirely on RED, this 90-minute, psychological suspense thriller contains explicit language and brief
nudity -- please no children under 18.

Forbidden Zone: Live in the 6th Dimension

A few years ago, The Valley Film Festival was introduced to a really nice man, Valley resident, and Film Distributor: Jack Murphy!

Jack works tirelessly to make sure that the festival, our filmmakers, and our staff are introduced and represented correctly to the industry. And, if you need a restaurant recommendation in Cannes, he can help you with that too! If you have a question, we'll pass it on. Really!

We're gushing about Jack today because a film he represents, the cult classic
FORBIDDEN ZONE is coming to a stage near you!

Forbidden Zone: Live in the 6th Dimension will have its World Premiere at Sacred Fools Theater Co this spring. On April 1st, you can rub elbows with Richard Elfman, who directed the movie, at the gala fundraiser.

Please spread the word and let us know if you're attending! We look forward to meeting you.
