We won the award for BEST SHORT FILM at the Bushwick Film Festival in Brooklyn! It’s amazing to have the film reach so many people and it’s all due to Festivals. Congratulations to the cast and crew of the film!
After a successful festival run (which still continues!), the film is now available to stream on Vimeo! Thanks to Short of the Week we’ve had over 10,000 views in less than 24 hours. I could never imagine that. Check it out here:<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/41997098″>Doubles With Slight Pepper</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/harnarine”>Ian Harnarine</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
The feature adaptation of the short film was recently selected by IFP to take part in their Emerging Storytellers program!
If you’re unfamiliar with the program here’s what they say:
The premier talent pool for new voices on the independent scene, RBC’s Emerging Storytellers presents 25 U.S. narrative features in early-stage development with little previous marketplace exposure. Writer/directors have a variety of experience, having previously established themselves through the festival circuit, as well as web, advertising and new media platforms.
As you can see – it’s a pretty big deal! I’ve loved the films that they’ve supported over the years and the other selections look pretty amazing. Needless to say, it’s going to be a really busy time in September. But, we’re looking forward to it.

We’ll be screening in Toronto on July 31st, 2013 at the Revue Cinema!
What makes this special is that we’ll be playing along with Janine Fung’s documentary La Gaita, which is about the Lara Brothers based out of Trinidad. If you don’t know who the Lara Brothers are, they are one of the few traditional Parang groups around. What’s Parang? It’s the Spanish language music that’s played in Trinidad around Christmas. Their music is featured in the trailer for Doubles With Slight Pepper and in key scenes in the film. It’s going to be a great night of music and film! Hope to see you there!
