Breaking Glass Pictures is set to release FLEE THE LIGHT, the female-fronted witchcraft-infused horror feature from writer Jennifer Mancini, on February 19.
Flee the Light held its World Premiere at the Great Canadian Horror Film Festival, winning Best Feature, and proceeded to successful screenings at the Toronto Indie Horror Festival, The Blood in the Snow Film Festival, and the Hamilton Film Festival, where it won Best Original Music. The film stars Annie Tuma, Ariana Marquis, Canadian singer/songwriter Jane Siberry, Jamar Adams Thompson, Caroline Raynaud and Leanne Ofori-Atta.
“Breaking Glass Pictures and Wazabi Films, our International partners, have been supporting this film since before we got our first piece of financing,” said writer and producer Jennifer Mancini of Mythic Trips Entertainment. “We’re elated to have come this far, and to continue working together, bringing Flee The Light to the widest possible audience.”
The film follows sisters Andra and Delfi, who travel to a remote town after Delfi insists she was once a witch and they must visit the sacred place of her coven. While there, Andra’s infected with an evil force and now it’s up to Delfi to save her sister from a fate worse than death.
“Flee The Light is a harrowing story about two sisters plagued by a sinister force and really highlights the power of women filmmakers in the horror space”, said Rich Wolff, CEO of Breaking Glass Pictures. “We are thrilled to add this film to our catalogue and bring such a powerful emerging talent to audiences.”
Flee the Light will be released February 19 on iTunes/Apple TV, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, Vudu, Vimeo, and through local cable & satellite providers.
