“…spectacle worthy of Brian De Palma” - Film-Forward
“Funny yet poignant, bittersweet yet encouraging, playful yet purposeful, Dim the Fluorescents is a gem.” - Slug Magazine
Films We Like is pleased to announce the upcoming theatrical release of director Daniel Warth’s DIM THE FLUORESCENTS, winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at the Slamdance Film Festival, and named one of six Canadian features to look out for in 2017 by NOW Magazine.
Struggling actor Audrey (Claire Armstrong) and aspiring playwright Lillian (Naomi Skwarna) pour all of their creative energy into the only paying work they can find: corporate role-playing demonstrations. When they book the biggest gig of their careers at a hotel conference, they commence work on their most ambitious production to date and the ensuing tensions threaten to derail both the production and their friendship. As wryly funny as it is unexpectedly poignant, DIM THE FLUORESCENTS is a one-of-a-kind portrait of the artistic life and process in the unlikeliest of settings.
