Around The World

Posted by on Aug 9, 2011 in News | No Comments

Following our exciting international premiere at Karlovy Vary in July, Stranger Things is heading off on more voyages, the next two both in the Americas.

Our South American premiere will be at the brilliant SANFIC film festival, in Santiago, Chile, where Stranger Things will be playing alongside Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture and Megan Griffiths’s The Off Hours (which stars the lovely Amy Seimetz). Also at SANFIC, in the Joyas de Medioriente section are OK, Enough, Goodbye and Man Without a Cellphone — two films from the Forum of Independents at Karlovy Vary.

The festival runs from August 19 to 27, and Stranger Things screens August 24 @ 3:30pm and August 27 @ 5:30pm at Cine Hoyts La Reina (Av. Ossa 655, La Reina, Santiago).

Just for fun, here’s the film’s synopsis in Spanish!

Luego de la muerte de su madre, Oona regresa a la casa donde pasó su infancia, en la costa de Inglaterra, para revisar su precaria herencia. Ahí conoce a Mani, un misterioso vagabundo que se ha refugiado en el lugar pensando que está abandonado. Ella lo invita a quedarse en el cobertizo que hay en el jardín. Entre los silencios y la vulnerabilidad de ambos, se formará un lazo muy especial y delicado.

For those up in the north in Canada, the exciting news is that we’ll be screening at the 35th Montreal World Film Festival where Stranger Things will be in the section called Regards sur les cinémas du monde.

Montreal WFF, one of Canada’s oldest festivals, celebrates international auteur-driven cinema. The festival takes place August 18 to 28. We’ll post our screening time as soon as it’s announced.

Please spread the word!
