5 Indie Films Doing It Radically Different

By: Jerry Rizzo

In early March, we announced an exciting partnership with independent film crowdfunding and distribution leader Seed&Spark. That partnership has come to fruition, as five radically different independent films are now in the FiOS On Demand library.

The opportunity to simultaneously provide independent filmmakers extended reach and offer FiOS audiences new, authentic storytelling is energizing.

“It is exhilarating to be able to offer the opportunities of traditional distribution but with a much more transparent, innovative and forward-thinking philosophy,” says Mia Bruno, producer of marketing and distribution at Seed&Spark.

The films are:

 
SPENCER
This romantic comedy chronicles the travails of Spencer Baum, an aspiring filmmaker aiming to break into the biz in Brooklyn. On the brink of success, Spencer's world takes a tumble when his supermodel/actress girlfriend decides to leave.
 
WE ALWAYS LIE TO STRANGERS
Five years in the making, We Always Lie To Strangers is a story of family, community, music and tradition set against the backdrop of Branson, Missouri, one of the biggest tourist destinations in America.

FARAH GOES BANG
 
TRUST, GREED, BULLETS & BOURBON
Five years after a simple heist goes awry, a group of thieves reconvene at a cabin in upstate New York, hoping to recover the diamonds they initially stole.


PERCIVAL'S BIG NIGHT
Shocked at having witnessed a hit and run, serial underachiever Percival returns home to his Brooklyn apartment and begins to reassess the listless life he shares with his pot-dealing roommate, Sal.
