PRESS RELEASE

BLACK FAWN DISTRIBUTION ACQUIRES HOME VIDEO RIGHTS FOR SILENT RETREAT, RELEASE NEW POSTER

Black Fawn Distribution To Release A Film Monkey Production Feature “SILENT RETREAT” On DVD In Canada September 2nd



(Toronto, ON) – After taking home the prize for Best Canadian Feature at last year’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival, SILENT RETREAT has now found a home on DVD through Black Fawn Distribution. A Film Monkey Production has granted the Canadian home video rights for their award winning creature feature SILENT RETREAT to Black Fawn Distribution to be released on DVD in Canada on September 2nd, 2014. After taking home the prize for Best Canadian Feature at last year’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival, SILENT RETREAT has now found a home on DVD through Black Fawn Distribution. A Film Monkey Production has granted the Canadian home video rights for their award winning creature feature SILENT RETREAT to Black Fawn Distribution to be released on DVD in Canada on September 2nd, 2014.

SILENT RETREAT celebrated its World Premiere at the 2013 Toronto After Dark Film Festival and has since gone on to screen at the Nocturna Film Fest in Madrid, Spain. Led by talented actresses Chelsea Jenish and Sofia Banzhaf, SILENT RETREAT is ultimately about women finding their voice and refusing to be silent, a theme that resonated with Lee while developing the film. With SILENT RETREAT, Lee added her own spin to the genre: strong female characters combined with an emotionally resonant theme and classic horror imagery.

“We really wanted to acquire a film that was very different thematically,” states Black Fawn Distribution Sales Manager C.F. Benner. “What makes Tricia’s voice so unique is her ability to build quality characters by using small pieces of social commentary. It’s a very clever style that really allows these characters to come to life and drive the film forward. Obviously SILENT RETREAT is a creature feature, but this film has a lot of layers that are enjoyable to peel back and explore as you’re watching.”

"After learning of Black Fawn Distribution's grassroots marketing and their mission to sell directly to genre fans, I was very excited to begin working with them on SILENT RETREAT,” explains director Tricia Lee. “I think they’ll do a fantastic job getting the film out there.” Described by Rue-Morgue.com as a film that “beautifully blends supernatural horror with the terrors of the real world,” SILENT RETREAT is already being noticed by critics. The National Post stated that SILENT RETREAT is a “chilling little number from Canadian director Tricia Lee” while Ain’t It Cool News heralded the film as “a tense little beast of a movie that has some powerfully terrifying moments interspersed with some even more impactful silences." The SILENT RETREAT DVD will include a behind the scenes featurette, director and writer commentary, an exclusive artwork gallery and trailers for the film.
