The Protocol Screening On Sunday

nysff_banner_001poster_001Consider this your final call ladies and gentlemen.

A quick reminder that next Sunday (3rd November 2019) the short film The Protocol will be screened at the New York Short Film Festival.

After 6 years of waiting, the small drama starring Xen Sams, Max Ryan and Kathryn finally gets a première.

Taking place at the Cinema Village independent cinema in Greenwich Village, New York, tickets ($12 each) are available via the festival’s website HERE.  The film is sharing the bill from 6:30pm in Short Block 6 with the pilot of a web series.

The Protocol NYSFF Info Update

nysff_banner_001Today we have a little more information regarding The Protocol and its upcoming screening at the New York Short Film Festival (NYSFF).  The previous post raised a few questions, such as why the block the short film was in only contained two items.  As I’d guessed, the screening of Switch is not a short film but the pilot episode of the series.

The details provided by the NYSFF (see below) include extra details on the plot of The Protocol and confirms what the poster says in that there will be Q&As afterwards.

The New York Short Film Festival will be holding a special screening focusing on mental health awareness at 6:30pm on Sunday, November 3 at Cinema Village in Union Square.

poster_001The program features two short works exploring the human mind— the world premiere of The Protocol, a dystopian drama starring Xen Sams (Waldo, The Banker) as a double agent in a near future where people must have their full range of emotions technologically suppressed in order to be allowed to remain in society, and the pilot episode of Stavroula Toska’s Switch, a web series which follows Toska as a Greek immigrant healing from PTSD while working as a high-end dominatrix to make ends meet.

The screening will be followed by Q&A with the creators who will discuss their process and personal connections with their stories.

[The] Protocol is being shared as a memorial screening in honor of Hadley Dean Myers who served as a case manager for care and counseling of the homeless, eventually loosing her own battle to mental health disease (23 December 2017).

Switch is based on its creator’s own story of reclaiming self after an abusive marriage.

Other notable actors associated with the films include Kathryn Morris (Minority Report), Max Ryan (Rage), Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck), Jon Lindstrom (Bosch).

The double feature will be held as part of the 4th annual New York Short Film Festival, a week long celebration of indie films and filmmakers.

The Protocol: Reactivated

poster_001Remember The Protocol?

KM UK last brought you news on the project two and a half years ago when a new IMDb page and a small video clip surfaced.  OK, there was the frankly hilarious April Fools 2017 post about the film becoming part of the Marvel Universe.  That was good.

In fact it goes back to the summer of 2013 when it was filmed.  Initially it seemed to be a short film, and then a pilot for a TV series (which is why it ended up in the TV section of KM UK Gallery).

Today we received news, via the actor Xen Sams, that the movie will be screened at the New York Short Film Festival in just two weeks time.

The Protocol is one of the official selection for the NYSFF and is scheduled to be shown on November 3rd (a Sunday) in a slot starting at 6:30pm.  As with most short film festivals, groups of films are shown together in blocks, often themed in some way.  In this case, as things stand, The Protocol is only being shown alongside one other project, Switch.  This appears to be a web-based TV series but probably exists as a short as well.  Maybe there are showing a complete episode so it fills much of the 75-minute block.

nysff_banner_001The Brian A Miller directed short starring Max Ryan, Xen Sams, and Kathryn, always looked a little sci-fi but it has not been clear what the film is about.  In her announcement, Xen Sams described it as “filmed and created in effort to raise awareness for our nation’s ongoing mental health disorder.”  The tipped over glass of water in the poster (above) raises a few questions too.

If you are in New York in early November perhaps you could get to Cinema Village independent cinema in Greenwich Village to see The Protocol.  Tickets are available via the festival’s website HERE.  It is Short Block 7, 6:30pm, 3rd November.  Let us know what it was like.

Reverie WonderCon Screening Date

wondercon_logo_765x679As reported by KM UK last week the new NBC sci-fi-ish drama series Reverie will be getting a special preview screening at the upcoming WonderCon convention in Anaheim, California.

In the past couple of days a full schedule of the 3-day event has been released so we can now pin-point when and where that screening will take place.

The whole event kicks of at lunchtime on Friday the 23rd of March 2018.  Sci-fi fans aren’t morning people :-)  Turn up a little late and you’ll miss Reverie as it is scheduled for 3:30pm on that first day.

The screening will take place in the recently opened North section of the Anaheim Convention Center.  First used in September 2017 this annexe adds a significant amount of extra space and is accessible via a covered walkway from the main three halls.  The room in question is called North 200A.

As things stand it does not look like any of the actors or producers will be attending but who know what might change in the next two weeks.

So that is Friday, 23rd March, 3:30pm, room North 200A.  Got it?

The Comic-Con website HERE has all the necessary details.
