A review in Boston

we got some nice words for our film by Mike Everleth from Badlit.

The Scavengers, dir. Cory Bowles. A trio of young boys find a dead body in a remote wooded area. Sounds like Stand By Me, right? Wrong, especially since the body here is that of a mermaid and the boys spend an afternoon poking, prodding and desecrating the body the way only young, curious lads can. Still it’s an oddly touching story about peer pressure and growing up. The trio is split among the typical dividing lines: The aggressive kid who tricks the weakest into the most difficult situations while the passive middle kid just casually observes without getting involved. Plus, the corpse/mermaid make-up effect is disturbingly convincing.

the other films reviewed are that cool

Since you've been Gone...Boston Underground Film Festival, San Diego Black Film Festival , Reel 2 Real Festival For Youth, and The Dam Short FIlm

wow. Long time since the last check in but lots has gone on and still kicking. THE SCAVENGERS has played at many more screenings and the response has been great.
We got to attend The Boston Underground Film Festival where 4 count em, 4 films from Halifax played. That would be alongside TREEVENGE, LOST AND FOUND and the wonderfully offensive BLOODSHED. The hospitality was great and we were fortunate enough to screen our short before DEAD GIRL, a film we were stoked to show with. the movie is amazing.

Before that we got To show in Vancouver for the Reel 2 Real International Film Festival, Nevada for The Dam Short Film Festival, and San diego Black Film Festival.

we want to thank everyone that checked the screenings out and thank as well for the comments
the film has been getting great response and we're working on another dish.

next up
The Halifax International Viewfinder's Festival of Youth this April.
